The Supreme Court put restrictions on bursting of firecrackers this year with a focus on the environment.
On Diwali, I was taking a stroll in my building’s garden. Ideally, the place would be filled with adults talking and laughing with each other. Children running around and bursting firecrackers. Everyone would be socializing and really enjoying themselves.
In contrast to this illustration, this year the gardens were empty. Not a soul could be seen. It really made me think,”was the focus of Diwali to burst firecrackers only?” Doesn’t Diwali mean much more? It was absolutely astonishing to see such a sight. Never did I thought that the restriction on firecrackers could become a catalyst for people to not socialize.
In this SnapKey, I raise the following question.
“Has our focus really shifted towards something as materialistic as bursting firecrackers that we have forgotten our core quality of being humans, i.e. to be social animals? Has the focus become obscured?
