Diwali has always been very special to me since childhood. I always enjoyed the vibe that Diwali brings. The firecrackers, sweets, new clothes, family, friends, everything has always been so much fun. Oh, and receiving the gifts.
As I grew up, receiving the gifts turned into giving the gifts, and it has been equal fun. For the past three years, the focus is shifting to gifting something meaningful and having a message attached to it.
Maybe it’s the natural evolution of life as we experience it. As the experience grows, our focus moves from fun to a different perspective.
Starting from just enjoying the festivals as a kid to making them meaningful and purposeful in sharing the ideas in gifts as life progresses.
At the same time, remember that we were interested only in the fun when we were kids, and every kid deserves it. Our ideology and our experiences shouldn’t be imposed on the kids. When their time comes to be an adult, nothing will stop them.
My theme for this year’s gift is ‘savings and investment’.
What gift are you thinking of this year?
