Earthen lamps, candle lights, homes filled with the smell of delightful sweets, the warmth of friends and families, and the chill of the upcoming winter season, that’s how we’d like to paint a picture-perfect Diwali.

Diwali is one of India’s most prominent festival that depicts the beginning of Hindu’s New Year. It is a unique experience cherished over five memorable days in which different cultures are celebrated.

Every year, RMSI organizes Diwali celebrations with much fanfare and galore. Various activities are executed to lighten the mood while contributing to making the office feel like a second home. Due to the pandemic, we are celebrating online this year and trying to re-live the fun we once had when everyone was present in the office. RMSI is organizing e-Diwali with many activities such as rangoli making competition, diya lighting, poster making and virtual pooja ceremony during ‘work from home’.

This pandemic has made everyone explore their hidden potential. As an organization, we all are looking forward to normalizing the new normal.

Let the Light Shine to Dispel Darkness

Diwali is also a source of hope to find life amidst the darkness and achieving prosperity and happiness. It is also celebrated to spread love and remove hatred and violence from the world. According to Hindu Mythology, the lighting of diyas stands for vivacity and integrity. With modernization, the original diyas have been substituted in cities with classy neon lights and candles.

Therefore, Diwali is called the festival of lights. More than anything, it symbolizes the light over darkness, good over evil, and hope over despair.

But the true essence of the festival lies in the simple philosophies of progress and prosperity, unity and togetherness, new beginnings, and inviting positive energy into our lives.

So let’s have a happy, safe, and cracker free Diwali, and keep up the spirits high to fight this pandemic together!
