LIV this Diwali

Diwali is a festival of lights. I vividly remember, how as a child, I used to wait for this festival. Everything used to be such a great fun, right from new clothes, crackers to sweets. The very feel of friends visiting us and our going to friends’ places used to bring so much happiness. The homes illuminating with lights, earthern lamps, candle-sticks etc. made the whole environment so bright. I used to wait for my Papa to bring lot of crackers and sweets.

Years have gone by. This festival of lights is very close to my heart. Have definitely said no to crackers. But rest of the festivities continue. The houses are beautifully decorated with lights. People exchange sweets or some gifts. Goddess Lakshmi is worshiped in the evening. The markets may be overcrowded but full of life. Sweets and toy shops are tastefully decorated to attract the customers.

Diwali is supposed to be festival of prosperity. Prosperity in terms of money would happen but what about the prosperity of relationships. Yes, Diwali is a festival to celebrate prosperity in every manner. Relationships are so special. Getting connected emotionally with family and friends are very important and this togetherness is celebrated on Diwali.

And that is the message which Sony LIV is conveying this Diwali. Sony LIV is an online digest of all Sony shows. Sony LIV’s Diwali short film – Chhoti Khushi #LIVThisDiwali is a beautiful film which depicts that how important it is to transcend beyond one’s ego. Life is too short to hold grudges against anyone. Especially, when it comes to families, we can’t afford to be angry with our loved ones.

This short film showcases the ego-tussle between two brothers. Circumstances and situations have pulled them apart. But the very festival of Diwali makes both of them miss one another and how Diwali brings them together shredding all egos, conflicts. A beautiful story of togetherness, erasing judgments, and staying in the moment. This short film is definitely going to touch your hearts. Beautiful moments of togetherness are shown. Saying sorry may not belittle us at all. Watch “Choti Khsuhi” (rather it should have been “Badi Khushi”) on Sony LIV directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari. Naveen Kasturia, Suneel Sinha and Ashish Verma star in this short film.
