This year we celebrated Diwali with kids who are staying in front of the college I work at (kids of daily-wage workers).
We bought gifts for everyone and distributed them before Diwali. Also, I distributed the old toys my kid used to play with among them. I made my son hand out the toys to the children so that he learns to give. He is only 4 years old, so he hesitated to give his toys in the beginning. But we convinced him and then he was ready to give them away.
He was so happy giving his toys away!
He is our only child, so sometimes it is quite difficult to teach him to share his things. But at last everything settled down, and our son learnt that sharing is caring.
It was a fun evening as we played with all kids and distributed gift and sweets among them. We even asked the students from our college to teach the kids basic hygiene and the importance of studying. Our student-group is going to organize an awareness event for them after Diwali.
The happy faces of the kids made our day. We hope you all had a safe and Happy Diwali too, and we wish you a prosperous New Year ahead. We request you to celebrate your Diwali and other festivals by putting a smile on at least one face around you!
