It's that time of the year again; a time of lights and colour, love and family, gifts and happiness, fireworks and a whole lot of sweets. Diwali is, by far, one of the most popular festivals in the country, if not the most. Anyone who celebrates the festival goes beyond to make it a special occasion, whether it is buying brand new clothes or decorating their homes. No expense is spared when it comes to this beautiful festival that brings people together.
Maruti Suzuki Celerio’s new video shows that there is yet another way to make this festival a little brighter, at least for the people you love. The brand’s message is simple- all you need is one small change, to make someone’s Diwali truly memorable.
It is likely that your first reaction to this idea would be “My family and friends know how busy I am. They know I love them without me needing to show it.”
While it may be true that the people close to you know that you love them, there’s no harm in showing the depth of your feelings in small ways. It’s the people closest to us that we often take for granted. In our rush to stay on top of our jobs and balance our personal lives, we are left with very little time to spend on anything else. Which is why we often feel that going out of our way to do something different is too much to ask for. What we need to realise though, is that it doesn’t take a big gesture to please someone. It’s the little things in life that make people happy.
Think back to a time when you weren’t as busy as you are right now. Think of all the wonderful things that someone else did for you. It could be anything as simple as your mother fussing over you when you were sick, or your sibling taking you out to a movie when you were having a bad day, or your best friend surprising you with a midnight visit on your birthday. It’s the little, everyday joys that brighten up our days and make us appreciate these close bonds that we share with our loved ones.
What better time to return the joy than Diwali?You don’t need a grand gesture to spread a little happiness to the people you love. Start with the small things, like making the time to take your parents out shopping, or helping your spouse clean and cook, or spending some time with your children in the park. These are things that may seem small to you, but the joy they bring to your loved ones will be indescribable.
That is the message that Maruti Suzuki Celerio is trying to spread this festival season. Make #OneChange to your routine; one change that will bring your loved ones a little extra joy, and see the lights shine brighter than ever, this Diwali.
