Dussehra in Modern Time
In today’s time, the festivals are taking a modern look apart from its reality, which has reduced its importance somewhere. like-
There was a custom of visiting each other at Dussehra, now they have taken the form of mobile calls and internet messages.
Empty hands did not go away, so Shami used to take the letter, but now instead of taking sweets and trophies, it has become a festive festival with the cost of spending.
The legend was remembered behind Ravana daan, from which everybody should get a message that ego vanishes, but now there are different types of fireworks which are fueled due to the increase in the cost of waste. At the same time, the problems of pollution are increasing and the accidents are also increasing.
Thus, festivals are changing because of modernization. And, somewhere, the common citizens are turning away from them as a form of religious flutter. These forms have been spoiled by humans only. According to the Puranas, the form of all these festivals was very simple. It was not a pretence but a belief in God. Today, they are becoming so distant from their foundation that human beings are filling bitterness. Humans have started seeing them as a waste of time and money.
We all should understand the reality and celebrate the festivals as simplicity. Festivals have a special contribution in keeping the country’s economic system smooth, so we must celebrate all the festivals.
