Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
Diwali ads made over the years have strived to spread positive messages for society, and add to the joy of meeting family.
What a wonderful time of the year it is when we are engulfed with boundless excitement to celebrate Diwali! The shine and sparkle, the food, and the get-togethers amount to unlimited fun. And Diwali ads that focus on this are win-win.
It is love that makes the world go round. Hence we need to spread goodness among our fellow beings in order to multiply the joys of the festive season. Let us nurture empathy, kindness, and understanding in our hearts: the precious gems that money can’t buy.
Diwali ads made over the years have strived to spread positive messages for society. There are many that have appealed to me because of their meaningful content; here are just a few that I would like to share!
A street-side seller of earthen lamps catches the attention of a boy and his mother returning home after a shopping spree. While the son is eager to buy a few lamps, his mother does not show interest. Upon wishing the seller a happy Diwali, she sighs and questions how it can be happy for her unless all her lamps get sold.
The little boy clicks her picture and rushes home to print out flyers to spread the news about her business all around town. His small act of kindness works wonders for the woman when all her lamps get sold! This ad #UmeedKaDiya (Light of Hope) by one of the giant printer companies will make your sentiments overflow to the brim.
It can never be easy to miss the celebrations during a festival. Yet sometimes a family member needs to be away from home for the household to run smoothly.
A hotel network presents a beautiful story #BitterSweets on this theme. Late at night while being engrossed in a meeting, the boss offers his grains of wisdom to his younger colleague. He says that his heart longs to leave work and go home for Diwali, but he intelligently decides otherwise. They are working tirelessly so that their families not only get to celebrate Diwali but also get to have a blessed life thereafter! The concluding line “Celebrating those who miss the celebrations” is indeed thought provoking!
Has it ever crossed our minds that the bus and cab drivers, the flight attendants, and many others in the travel and hospitality industry are away from their families and working even on the day of Diwali? They have been in the line of duty so that we can travel and enjoy our time with our loved ones.
Let us harness a sense of gratitude for all those lovely people who have contributed their parts to our happiness. A heartfelt Diwali greeting and a “thank you” can make them feel that their services are being appreciated and valued. Filmed by a luggage company, the ad #DiwaliKaSafar (Travel during Diwali) throws light on the power of kind words!
It does not come as a surprise that millennials are glued to their mobile phones 24/7. Aptly titled, #UniteFor #Love is an ad by a mobile company to show how important it is to have family time.
A young man who is always in a rush hands over his phone to his mother on Diwali day. He decides to have undisturbed, quality moments with her and to indulge in sweet conversations, minus his engagements on the phone.
Evening lamps are being lit in the home of a middle-aged couple. Looking at his phone, the husband sadly tells his wife that none of his relatives have sent him a message for Diwali. Even the uncle who sends him a good-morning forward every day has forgotten to wish him. The wife tries to comfort him, saying that they all might have been busy.
Just then the doorbell rings. A surprise greets him as his relatives come to celebrate Diwali at his home. Titled “Badi Family Badi Diwali” (Big Family Big Diwali), this ad film by a dairy milk chocolate company speaks volumes: text messages cannot match the warmth of big family gatherings! Drop by if you can to wish your dear ones!
These ads, dipped in the flavor of delicate human sensitivity, sure touched my heart! I believe they will strike a chord with you too.
Here’s to wishing you all a very happy Diwali!

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
