India of secular festivals

Editorial of Vismayam Magical News, 23/09/08.

Festivals in India provide ecstasy of greater degrees. October is going to witness three festivals to rejoice the nation. Id-Ul-Fitr (Ramzan), Durga Puja and the Dussehra are to raise high voltage of joy to light up the nooks and corners of this great land.

Composition of October celebrations become incomplete without Gandhi Jayanti. 2nd of Oct. every year marks the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, the still glowing light of peace and nonviolence.

Festivals usually bestow great ideals for the society to imbibe. Ramzan clears our mind and soul from the soils of evil and greed. The fasting is a way of sacrifice, a sign of our compassion for the poor. Durga Puja and Dussehra are more similar to each other. Both send the single message of victory of the virtue over the evil.

India has been a nation with great resilience. This soil always allowed good cultures and customs to flourish. The secular composition of our nation, chiefly owes to this unique quality of its people. Celebrations, here are occasions not only of joy, but also of the great perseverance with which the Indian community has been incorporating its multi religious, multi communal and multi cultural make up.

Currently, magic shows have become a usual component during celebrations. While performing to the applause of packed audiences, let us also remember to foster the aforesaid secular resilience. While waving our magic batons, let virtues wax and evils wane.
