We all get happy and most of us share the happiness with sweets. At least, I do it and it is a superb feeling to do so. People in your home and friends gets excited when you tell them, ” you are bring them sweets.”
They wait for you and sprung upon when you reach home. Everyone seems happy and the feeling of source of happiness is awesome.
If you aren’t doing this then you are missing on one of the best things in life. Do share happiness and make everyone’s mouth sweeter. Sweet in the mouth and people talk very sweet. How cool is that?
In India, it has became a custom to share almost every other celebration with sweets. Today is the day when in our mythology, Rama killed Ravana and soon the Diwali festival will come. Here we get all the festivals one after another. No space in between.
Finish one and you need to be ready for another one. Is this sustainable? I doubt it, however it has a long way to go.
When I was a kid, I remembered there was a lot of enthusiasm and people really look forward to every festival and were very happy. Now the times have changed and people are busy in the technology world, more money problems and happiness have changed it’s meaning.
Festivals don’t bring out the involvement from the people like it used to do before. From every aspect things have changed and slowly it is going to a stage where it will be no more celebration and just a holiday for the namesake of it.
I really like each of the festivals. I love celebrating it and eating sweets. My memories demand more of it and now it is the space for every one to get lost in their own mini scale life. Family groupings and sharing happiness have took on another toll.
It wasn’t predicted by anyone of us that such fate would come, however we can’t deny the truth now. From every aspect people are losing interest and the celebrations will soon come to a halt.
I remembered the day when my mother expected that I bring in some sweets with my first salary. I hesitated, I asked and wondered what was the purpose of it. I wouldn’t mind giving all my salary to my mom. She kept on insisting on sweets.
I now realize such small acts of surprise sweets or even expected sweets bring in the joy of family members. No one said they don’t want a piece of pie. Everyone wants the sweet at the end of the lunch or dinner. It is the universal acceptance and the greedy innocent child inside of us that demands such things.
We look forward to it, it gives us a sense of pride and it brings us the better side of us. Inculcate this habit and see the outcome. Your family members will smile more and be connected more.
Conversations happen when you do such things, else it is the same boring stuff over and over again. You don’t want to do that, do you?
Here are the things I follow :
1. I buy occasional sweets, say chocolates for my friends and family members, they happily accept it. Everyone does right.
2. It was a period of long haul before I realized this and now I find reasons to bring in some sweets.
3. Spending little amounts and small amounts of sweets brings the biggest smile. People share and love blossoms.
Are you the one who does it? If not then start doing it, the advantages outweighs the negative (if you can think of any).
I bought some jalebis today, what about you?
