I didn't want to spoil the mood of our members .so i respond for this lately.All the festivals are useful to rejoice,forgot bad things ,sharing happy with others .It helps as a sigh in our life.If we look around us people are starving of hungry,poverty,uneducation,diseases ,homeless families ,unemployment,price rise ,law and order problems ,thefts etc. It is not the situation to rejoice.But keeping aside our problems we enjoy festivals .It gives strength to face future .So we can enjoy these.
But What is Deepavali? There are many stories around it .Some are not acceptable.
Ordinary people may enjoy all festivals ;but some ,like the members of T S who are good to search for good and truth should be courageous to face and put the truth before the mankind.It will spark to spread good.
Social scientists saying that Aryas wrote Puranas as their likings .They mentioned as Asuras the people who lived already .The invaders fought with their knowledge and weapons and conquered Asuras(?)
lord Krishna represent the Aryas as their King and Naragasura represents erstwhile people.This does not shows any' good succeeding bad '.This is history before the written period .
Now there is no Arya or Dravida .In thousands of years all had mingled with one another and who can say Iam pure Aryan or Dravidan .It will only useful to spread hatred among people.
It is a trick that the ideological Naragasuran who was our forefather was killed by invader Krishna and captured our soil and by this Purana story make us to enjoy ourselves our death and defeat.So I do not prefer to have any celebration on Deepavali .
