It is said that happiness grows when you share it. Festivals are times dedicated to sharing and caring. We live in a society that is meant to restore equality and spread happiness amongst all. Even though discrimination, variety, and inequality exist alongside equality, fraternity, and solidarity, a festival can be the time to place the latter ones over the formers. Through the spirit of joy and happiness, the darkness can be bided a good goodbye forever.
With the entire country celebrating the festival of lights, join us at JP International School, to pledge today to spread the holy lights of the festival across the faces that mostly remain silhouetted for the rest of the year. We, at JP International School, ranked among the Best CBSE Schools in Greater Noida, believe that today, when humanity is battling against the menacing Corona Virus, it is our turn to reestablish faith in compassion and brotherhood. And what can be a better occasion and opportunity to bring the underprivileged up to the platform where all can stand to overcome the inequalities.
As all of you might know, the pandemic has taken away employment and earning opportunities from many. All of us are known to at least a couple of such people who have been brutally stricken by the pandemic batons. This Diwali, let us step forward to make their Diwali meaningful as well. After all, festivals are for everyone, and if even one person remains out of it, we fail as the human race.
On that note, we would like to share with you a few ways you can put in your bit this Diwali to make a difference in the lives of those who probably don’t say it but actually need your help. Always remember that every drop is significant for the ocean to gain its volume. Similarly, every contribution and effort count regardless of its magnitude.
Distribute Sweetsamongst the Destitute
Diwali is a festival of lights, sweets, chocolates, and, most importantly, love. Celebrations aim at inclusive happiness and never isolated entertainment. Make your kids realize the meaning of selfless love and distribute chocolates and sweets amongst the impoverished children of your area. A little smile on the faces that carve for love and compassion will brighten up your Diwali like no other. Let the light of the Diwali be the illumination of the soul this time and not just the flame on the earthen lamp.
Pay a Visit to the Orphanage
You can also take your kid to a nearby orphanage to offer the children a piece of your love and kindness in the form of Diwali gifts. This will make the unfortunate ones a part of your celebration of the festival. Your kids will also learn to share happiness with all, regardless of their socio-economic belonging. Allowing your child to play and spend some quality time with these kids can be a wonderful way to instill the spirit of equality in him/her. Let this Diwali bring the warmth of humanity to every heart.
Share Your Joy With the Less Privileged Children
If you know some of the less privileged kids of your area, invite them to be a part of your Diwali celebration. Extend gifts, offer food and clothes to these children cutting down a part of the personal Diwali expenses you otherwise do. Make your children aware of the fact that sharing is the best form of happiness. It is through sharing our wealth and belongings that we procure true happiness.
We, the entire JPIS family, wish each and everyone of you a very happy and prosperous Diwali, and we also wish that everyone gets a way out to reach the people living on the edge to make a difference in their lives this time. Festivals are always special, but we can turn them into our opportunities to eradicate darkness and restore perpetual brilliance. This Diwali, let us all come forward and do our bit to make this world a better place.
