Festivals and Celebration

Christmas is the initial of the festival seasons of winter followed by New Year, Pongal and yet to come Republic Day and it’s always pleasure celebrating a festival whichever way it was. Whatever the belief believed beyond any festival at its edge is happiness and it comes as a break from the busy scheduled life of everyone on behalf are suppose to take this chance to get-together with family and friends to rejoice the eve.

I quite disappointed with the way holidays and festivals are celebrated today in front of televisions and no one is willing to go out by joining with others to make the merry joy into rejoice and it’s disturbing to see some seeking benefit for just being happy and make others feel alike. I feel that we are lost from the path of tradition that quite harvest the happiness and thanksgiving is something we all need to think about others who are behind us being a force to push ahead.

There was a time eagerly waiting for the festival greetings via post from our dear ones far away and what our technology has done today in communication is simplify to the least, but lost to touch the heart of everyone. The words have become shot and sweet but their relationships have become lack of savor and the significant of talk or text have come to least when there is plenty of ways to communicate.

There used to say that each individual is united as society but what’s happening these days are the individuals becoming more individual to think a lot about themselves alone and only the last though is given to society . We aren’t to blame anyone since the individual growth is rising to summit and standing on their foot doesn’t care much for others... and so the gap increased between relationships has created the distance to share the joy. Hope u all enjoyed the festival season!

Very well written, Jeevan. I echo your sentiment - that these days a lot of festivals have lost their significance and the very purpose of bringing people together has failed, with more and more of us stuck up as couch potatoes.

Beautifully said, Jeevan. Totally agree with you!

Festivals are small events which brings the cheers and glow in our otherwise dull lives and gives all the more reason to live in a routine world in the company of our friends, family and relatives, which makes us forget the miseries of our lives atleast for some moments.

Hi Jeevan,

Visited your blog after a long time, and found your cute Christmas tree, and your mom's Pongal Kolam.
Heartening to see two festivals uniting
people!
