The festive season is back in India and with it comes the time of enjoying sweets, lighting the firecrackers and so on but this time Diwali will be a little different. Meeting others and exchanging gifts is also one of the rituals of the festival of lights but this year people will avoid interacting with people much due to the coronavirus pandemic. However, it doesn’t mean that they will celebrate Diwali with less zeal and enthusiasm; everything else will remain the same and individuals will compensate for personal meetings with video calls.
There is one activity which is synonymous to Diwali and that is cleaning the house before the festival. Yes, we are talking about “Diwali Ki Safai” and netizens are already recalling the time when their mothers used to make them a part of this activity despite their unwillingness. There is no denying the fact that many people don’t find it interesting or something they willingly wish to do and hence, social media has been flooded with funny memes over it. While some demanded a ban on child labour during Diwali Ki Safai, others talked about getting nostalgic while looking at old things while cleaning the house and many others talked about being tired after doing it.
These rib-tickling memes are pretty relatable:

Well, living in the clean surroundings is very important for not just physical health but also our mental health and this yearly activity ensures that our houses get completely cleaned at least once in a year. It also has a spiritual reason; Hindus worship God Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi on Diwali and it is being said that Goddess Lakshmi who brings prosperity and happiness doesn’t stay in a house which is dirty. So if you want good health, prosperity and happiness, get actively involved in Diwali Ki Safai, whether you like it or not.
