Diwali Preparations at my Home

Diwali celebrations started two months back at my place. My 6-years old nephew and my sister, with ample support from my jeeju, nephew's nana, nani, and dada, dadi, started a project of painting diyas. The plan was to put these diyas on sale around diwali on a small table outside there place. The stall would be managed by my nephew. It was an attempt to instil an attitude towards business in him. No one in my family has ever been in business so we thought that it would be a nice exercise for him. Here are some of the Diyas they painted.

No one in my family has ever been in business so we thought that it would be a nice exercise for him. Here are some of the Diyas they painted. It wasn't easy though. Even on the last day, it looked as if the plan will fail because of some regulations regarding setting up stalls in their housing society. But when the president of the society visited and saw that the set-up was tiny and being manned by a child, he agreed to let us hold the stall. We were all delighted because my nephew was really excited and the thought that after all the preparations, he will not be able to set up the stall was very disappointing. But we were thrilled when the president agreed. And thus started our stall. The stall was set for two days. And he managed to make some sales. He was happy when people kept coming but during the dull hours, we had to keep motivating him. Whenever someone came and bought the diyas, our hearts exploded with happiness and my nephew's face glowed with pride as he put the money in his basket. He acted like a true businessman, politely but firmly refusing any requests for discounts. At the end of the two days, he had sold several diyas. Many people came over and asked for diyas that he had painted himself and bought those. It was gratifying to see their generosity. At the end of the exercise, my nephew had made a healthy profit and enjoyed himself thoroughly. This wasn't only a learning experience for my nephew but also for us. And we are going to remember this diwali forever. Happy Diwali to you too and hope this Diwali brings new learnings your way too. :) Diwali, Happy Diwali, Diyas, lights, lamps. Diwali, Happy Diwali, Diyas, lights, lamps, festival

Thanks for your comment Shooting Star.

What you say about the process being more of a motivation than the money is absolutely true! Apart from this, for us the sheer glee on my nephew's face whenever someone bought a diya was priceless...
