I agree with the author. Often during Diwali, there is a definite discussion about whether things should be kept and whether it should be given out of the house or give it to someone who can use it properly. At home, it is often elders said that take care of things, it is very ancient, that we know how we bought it at that time, such things reflect their feelings which we understand. But as the author has said, it happens many times that the old things which we save for a particular festival, but when the time comes, they are not available or workable. Taking care of some special things makes sense with emotional attachment, but it is not useful to keep every little thing. Earlier, we used to keep many electronic items at our house, but at the time of need, they did not do that work. That is why we understood that some things have to be kept not all.
