Today (24 october 2022), which is kaartik maas krishn paksh amaawasya in Panchaang is deepaawali, the festival of lights. Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi are worshipped on this day.

Is there some rule that they should be worshipped only on this date ? Is there some rule that they should even be worshipped consciously ?

I have a feeling that majority of us who celebrate deepaawali on this particular day may have reduced it to a ritual imitating our day to day practices. It has sort of turned into like new year resolutions which cannot last for more than a few days after e make them.

If my earlier posts on the earlier occasions of deepaawali festival, I have discussed it in my own way. I have tried to stress the fact that performing the puja of goddess Laxmi in one day of the year will not make her to bless her. She is more likely to bless us if we perform the “puja” of Goddess Saraswati followed by that of Lord Vishwakarma, and that too in the proper way, not in the ritualistic way. “Puja” of Goddess Saraswati basically means educating ourselves, upgrading our skills, doing cutting edge research etc. All that takes years and in case of high tech skills decades and even centuries.

Once we educate ourselves we have to make use of that education to make goods and provide services of acceptable quality that could be sold to consumers. That is basically performing Vishwakarma puja. Based on quality of Saraswati Puja, our quality of Vishwakarma Puja is decided and that decides the degree of blessing from Goddess Laxmi.

To take a simplistic example, if our quality of education and skill is such that we can only manufacture low tech products like say garments, then Godess Laxmi will at the most bless us nominally and we will stay an LDC (least developed nation) or low income group nation. If our skill is of medium level (like say we are able to manufacture and export engineering goods) then we can beome a middle income group country. If our skill sets are such that we can develop cutting edge technology and sell that to rest of the world then we becaome High income group nation. That is when Goddess Laxmi actually starts to bless us abundantly.

Right now, India is a low ncome group nation with a per capita income of just over $ 2000 per annum. We will graduate to a middle income nation when our per capita income crosses $ 4000. It is easier said that done. Our neighbour Sri Lanka continues to hover around this mark and has failed to graduate to the ranks of Middle income group nation because they have failed to upgrade their skills to the level where they could break into the league of middle income group nations.

Likewise there are nations that are perpetually in middle income group ($ 4000 to $ 12000 per capita) but they have failed to break into the league of high income nations (per capita earning of over $ 12000) because that requires a different level of education, skill set and aptitude. This phenomenon is called middle income trap. Countries like Brazil and Argentina have fallen into this middle income trap.

High income group nations are those that have per capita income of above $ 12000. These counries are there because of their stress of high quality education and training, followed by strong manufaturing and services sector.

To cut a long story short, we still have a long long way to go before we can hope to be blessed by Goddess Laxmi adequately. We will hopefully becaome a middle income nation (per capita income of above $ 4000) by end of this decade and will not look back. Becoming a high income nation with a per capita income of above $ 12000 at current prices will take another two decades, depending on the level of education and skills that we are able to achieve for our masses. Hopefully we will reach there three decades from now. But that will not happen if we continue to carry on with our present habits. It is high time we stopped looking at education to be synonymous with acquiring degrees and government jobs. It is high time we shift the gear of our thinking. For long we are moving in second gear, whereas you need to shift to top gear if we have to race on the highway of progress.

I find it strange that the number of Deepaawali related songs in Hindi movies dwindled drastically after the golden era of HFM was over in 1980s.

“Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) is one of the exceptions. It was produced by Suresh Bokadia and K C Bokadia and directed by Vijay Reddy for BMB Combines, Madras. The movie, which was a remake of Kannada Hit popular movie “NAA NINNA MAREYALARE”(Translation of Title “I will not forget you”) starring famous Kannada hero Late Dr.Raj Kumar, Julie Lakshmi, Shubha, Leelavathi etc.

The movie “Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) had Anil Kapoor, Anita Raj, Padmini Kolhapure,Ashok Kumar, Sushma Seth,Deepak Parashar(in Special appearance),
Ramesh Deo, Seema Deo,Baby Guddoo, Satyen Kapoo,Naval Kishore,Bharat Bhatt etc in it.

The movie had six songs in it. Here is the first song from the movie to appear in the blog.

The song is sung by Mohammad Aziz. S H Bihari is the lyricist. Music is composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal.

The song is picturised on Anil Kapoor, Baby Guddu and Anita Raj.

Lyrics and other details were sent to me by Prakashchandra.

The movie “Pyaar Kiya Hai Pyaar Karenge”(1986) makes its debut with the song.

I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy, prosperous and safe Deepaawali. May Goddess Laxmi bless us all in a more fruitful manner than the blessing that most of us are used to from her.

meri chhoti si bagiyaa ki nanhi kali
mera jeevan hai teri hansi laadli

Atul ji,
Thanks for a short one but thought provoking post on why we are not yet qualified to be a high income nation.
While I agree to most of your points, I would like to stress that ” A Nation is what it is taught in its school and college “.
During the English rule, our educational system was prepared in such a way that it churned out only lower class servants, so that the English would become strongly entrenched in India and they rule only servants.
Even after our Independence this system remained same , nay it worsened to ensure killing any ambition or creating entrepreneurships through education.
Now I am seeing some steps being taken towards this, but it will take the toll of one or two generations to see the fruits thereof, i.e. about 30 to 40 years hence.

You are right. The education system given to us by British took away the ability to analyse and think and produced rote memorisers. If we still had some good educated people then it was not because of the system but instead of it.

Thank you for this Deepawali song.
This movie and it’s songs, for that matter most K C Bokadia films had good songs that went on to become very popular. But now they are in the memories of a few HFM fans.
And we need to dig up more Deepawali related songs for future use.😀
