EDITOR’S DESK- New Year, New Beginnings and a life marked for celebrations



So here we converge towards yet another exhilarating edition of ‘Enlightenment’.  This month edition in particular has been dedicated to the vibrant and joyous celebration of festivals especially regional & cultural New Year within all divine ethnic groups across India. As the spring season continues to add splashes of colour at every turn, April in India is indeed a time for new beginnings as most states of the country celebrate their New Year as per the Hindu Lunar Calendar. This month displays the rich culture and ritual of the country through various festivities like Baisakhi, Mahavir Jayanthi, Budh Purnima, Vishu, Ugadi/Gudi Padwa, Puthandu, Poila Baisakh, Easter and many more.  

Irrespective, the agenda is to rejoice life and live up to amplest.  Days like these and above are just to keep a man active and enthusiastic in so many ways. They are perhaps the most important of festivals in India, and offer a powerful possibility for spiritual growth. If you approach everything in a celebratory way, you learn to be non-serious about life but absolutely involved. The problem with most human beings right now is, if they think something is important, they will become dead serious about it. If they think it is not so important, they will become lax about it – they don’t show the necessary involvement. You know, in India when someone says, “He is in a very serious condition,” that means his next step is you know where. A lot of people are in a serious condition. There is only one thing that is going to happen to them which is of any significance. The rest will bypass them because with anything that they think is not serious, they are unable to show involvement and dedication towards that. That is the whole problem. The secret of life is to see everything with a non-serious eye, but be absolutely involved – like a game. That is the reason the most profound aspects of life are approached in a celebratory way, so that you don’t miss the point.

Now, since  idea behind is to make our whole life into a celebration,it is always the best endeavors of Team Enlightenment to be a source of retreat and joy of your lives and quench the modesty of inhabitant literary love.
