The festival of Diwali is a few days away and people have started prepping to ring in the celebrations. Cleaning of houses, preparing the Diwali Faral has already started along with the shopping for lights and lanterns. The festival of lights as we rightly call it, each evening we light up diyas in our homes and it is a way of decorating, welcoming the Goddess and eliminating darkness. And to make it a brighter Diwali for the underprivileged potters and artisans, a good initiative of#PottersKiDiwali has started trending on social media. Social media is talking about buying local and without any bargain as this is the season they earn the most. Diwali 2019 Calendar: Know Dates of Dhanteras, Lakshmi Puja, Bhai Dooj and Other Important Days of The Festival of Lights.
The maiden post of #PottersKiDiwali was started by Twitter user Anshul Saxena. He mentioned that its an awareness mission asking more and more people to buy from local potters. With the ease of online shopping and free home delivery, Diwali shopping has already changed course over the years. With everything available on the online retail applications and the heavy discount offers, it is quite convenient to order everything with a few clicks. But the local potters really strive and make their best to make the simple diyas year after year. Diwali being a peak season for sale, the mission of Potters ki Diwali is all about preferring to buy from them over the fancy and decorated items available elsewhere in shops or online. Netizens also joined in to spread awareness about this mission.

It is indeed a brilliant initiative and especially in the time where we all are hooked to online shopping. While we all celebrate the festival with joy and happiness, it will be an even better experience when we share the same joy with others, the less privileged ones. Spend some time with them while you go shopping and spread smiles.
