Diwali as a festival is meant to be celebrated together. Sure, that’s true for any festival. But Diwali’s inherent nature is about sharing and spreading happiness. It’s about togetherness. It’s that one time of the year when even extended family comes for a reunion and we all revel in the warmth of our bonds and the effervescent joy of the festival of lights!

However, there are a lot of people who stay away from their families and are forced to celebrate alone or at most, with friends. But what of their families back at home? One can only imagine what they go through… You don’t know what you’re missing until you don’t have it. Their pain at not having their dear ones close is beyond words.
