IMPORTANCE OF FESTIVITY AND CELEBRATION
Life is all about happiness and as human beings, social interaction with our fellow beings not only brings happiness but helps us grow our capacity to learn, familiarise ourselves with cultures, inquire, think, play and work.
In the chaotic and stressful planet we inhabit, happiness is overshadowed by negativity and insecurity and so the need for something that could bring positivity has been felt time and again. Thus, festivity and celebration gives the opportunity to forget all the worries and celebrate the positive side of life.
Celebration is an act of expressing reverence or appreciation. It is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.
The various festivals and celebrations form an integral part of the Indian culture. Celebrations just do not offer people a temporary reprieve from the daily grind, but also play a vital role in binding the people together and create a strong relationship of humanity through bonds of love, mutual respect and regard. It plays an important role to add structure to our social lives. Festivity brings convergence; it helps to instil happiness amongst the people and contributes immensely to feelings of social cohesion.
Celebrations can also manifest themselves in the form of expression of art, culture, heritage and traditions and is also a very strong medium to display the above, therefore, finds vital spot in the life of people.
Therefore I again implore all to rejoice in this feeling of festivity and celebration, not only on special days but make each day a special one and add colours to this beautiful spectrum of life.
