Sharing radhika’s take on the prompt –
In response to Eugenia’s ( BrewNSpewCafe ) writing challenge : Festive
The booming economy and changing times
have diluted the essence of celebrations.
Festivals, which reflected cultural tradition
today is more about flaunting riches.
The warmth of cohesive affability is
replaced by instant gratification.
Instagram is bombarded with
pictures of the pomp and grandeur displayed.
Fragrance and bonhomie of the festive spirit
sadly, remains obscure and scattered.
