Tears are secretions from the lacrimal glands in the eye. They are generated due to a variety of mental or physical issues which may or may not be controllable by the individuals themselves.

From a mental standpoint, we cry either when we are distressed about something or our happiness knows no bounds. Loosing your girlfriend, getting your dream job, failing in the exam, losing an important deal, meeting your parents after many years and so on and so forth are the kind of situations which we all go through day in and day out.

As per the Ramayana, Diwali was a festival of celebration, lights and happiness at Rama, Sita and Lakshman’s return to Ayodhya after 14 years in exile. It started off as a festival wherein people whitewashed their houses, lit up diyas (glow lamps), performed Lakshmi Puja and met friends and family.

But over the years, Diwali has unfortunately also become synonymous with gambling, firecrackers, noise and air pollution and more. Along with killing and injuring numerous human beings over the years, these firecrackers are also dangerous for all the animals around as they are loud enough to scare them.

Eventually, we all have to face the consequences of our actions. These consequences may depend on the actions we have taken.

Whether professional or personal, all of us look to our friends and family for advice and support in some form or the other at different stages in our lives.

Why do we do so? Is it because of the comfort and care? Is it because we really believe that they would advise us in an unbiased manner? Is it because we feel that they would give us the correct advice based on their experience?

Humans have an unlimited number of wants, don’t they? Being rich and famous is one of the most common among them. But there is more to life than just earning lots of money.

A happy and loving family, good friends, a stable work – life balance, being passionate about one’s hobbies & interests and more – there’s so much that one can’t even imagine. Those whose only aim is to maximize their earnings without even thinking of ways to splurge them are never ever happy. They always dream of earning more and that more has no limit.

And therefore, it’s important to come out of your closed doors and see the world out there. Breathe out in the open air and start thinking of life in a way where money is just another part and not the ONLY part.
