Diwali is literally and figuratively a festival of lights. It is a time when people get to gather to light crackers, create colourful rangolis and engage in Pujas and Aartis at their homes. However, it is not just limited to that. These festivities somehow bring people closer, leaving them with a sense of belongingness and gratitude. It is festivals like these that add a bit of spice and liveliness to our mundane routine lives.
Along with personal enjoyments, this festival is also a boon for the e-commerce industries to boom. It presents itself with an opportunity for business firms and agencies to come up with creative and moving ad campaigns that don’t just focus on selling their product, but also on giving out a solid social message through it.
After all, the aim is scouring through the prejudices and negative beliefs limiting us and erase those with lights and Diyas.
