Prompt- Where do the waves carry you?
My dear friend Sharmishtha (https://agnijaat.wordpress.com)/ reminded me of our own Halloween.
One day before Diwali we Indian celebrates Narak Chaturdasi and Bengalis celebrate Bhoot Chaturdashi.
Itis somewhat similar to Halloween celebrated everywhere, few similarities are-
both deal with the dark and eerie beliefs of a ghost world.
On Halloween, the ‘gateway’ between the dead and the living open and souls of their ancestor descent and crawl on the streets.
it is believed that the last 14 forefathers of a family visit their living relatives on this day.
I think all over the world it’s a custom to kindle fire, light to keep away evil: some do it with gutted pumpkins, some with lightening oil lamps.
Wisely both Halloween and Bhoot Chaturdashi use vegetables in the day’s rituals and then consuming them at a day-end fest.
We all have enjoyed the eerie, all the folklores about ghosts.
We all assume that in a parallel world where all are dark and dead, vampires and witches, there are perhaps friendly, and loving souls trying to connect with us so we have allowed a day for them to visit us.
