The most joyous, prestigious and prosperous festival of the year is here. Diwali is among one Hindu festival that comes in with a lot of zest and happiness. Unlike other festivals, people during this season deck up with rich outfits and accessories and get a chance to flaunt their own fashion and style. While kids and youths make the most of the festival with crackers to lit it up more.
Goddess Lakshmi the Hindu lord of wealth is worshipped by all her devotees and is often associated with this festival when people offer special prayers to her to invite her into homes. Wealth is one such thing that needs to be earned with honesty and loyalty; this is a basic human principle or an ethic. But who would like to ignore a trunk of wealth? In this 'Kalyug' greediness among all cannot be erased out. Its human to be greedy but till a certain extent. There's a bridge that has to be built to avoid grabbing more and more wealth. It is an illusion that seems real but is not actually. In the greed of wealth, people find out the neurotic way to fill the bags with money and land up falling in the pit with dire consequences.
