“Diwali Connects Us with Our Culture and Celebrates Life” Madhu Chawla on the Gifts of Diwali
Diwali, an annual Hindu festival of lights, celebrates Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India. For the 17.9 million Indians living overseas, many still celebrate Diwali this month in the countries where they’re based. Madhu Chawla, an Arizona-based Senior Manager at American Express, says Diwali becomes a piece of something you own and hold dear to your heart. And Diwali’s even more powerful when celebrated outside of India because of the deep connection with joy, their culture, and tender memories from the past. Madhu returns to our show after an earlier interview, which I share here: https://thesagesayers.buzzsprout.com/1526614/12808036. In this week’s episode, hear the gifts and opportunities of India’s festival season, including Diwali, and a call from Madhu for us all to celebrate one another’s culture and traditions, finding the joy and learnings within.
