Diwali is about many things – lights, sweets and family.
But most of all the true emotion of Diwali lies in lighting up other’s people lives in our own small way. Just beyond the celebrations, it stems from a pure emotion of wishing well for everyone around you.
This Diwali, HP showcased a story of a young boy lighting up the life of the lady who actually sells those diyas. Have we ever thought about what they are possibly feeling while selling those diyas on the streets? In a beautiful story, the short film takes people on the journey of what the protagonist (the diya seller) feels and goes through during the auspicious celebrations – trying to sell diyas and get by so she can celebrate with her family as well.
HP highlighted what Diwali really stands for – no fancy parties, dinners or card games. More than anything, I just loved the essence of the festival through this storyline. This spot really did showcase Diwali for it’s true and pure emotion.
PS: I cried a little when I watched this.
