#3: News Article

leave a comment

In the article Making the Best of a Lockdown Diwali, by Manish Padley,  published by BBC, I learned about the celebration of Diwali. This is a modern article, so I got to read aboud the traditional festivities and also how they had to adapt during this pandemic. THis year, it was celebrated November 12th throught the 16th. This Indian festival of lights is a time to think about hope, joy, and light in darkness. This holiday is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains worldwide. The people celebrated with fireworks, candles and lamp. On the ground, people would make shapes out of many colors of powder. “This year will be different and difficult but that’s no reason to not enjoy yourself according to Dip.” That quote from the article shows one man’s view on the plague’s negative effects and how the people plan handle it. Fortunately, the people of India are doing well, from what the article says, althought some community events have been cancelled to prevent sickness spread. There are still ways to celebrate. For example, over video-calls, some familes play games, including the traditional. I learned from this article that Indian culture is very family and tradion oriented. This celebration and how the Indian people celebrated it this year are great examples of how we need to have hope. See the light in the darkness. And keeping going on.

The Red Fort is a grand building made of crimson sandston in the cities capital. There are hundeds of languages spoken within India. Indo-Iranian and Dravidian languages are the most common dialects used. Hindi is the single biggest and well known languge there. About half the workforce works in agricultural fields. India can provide most of what it needs itself so trade has often been low. It is pretty diverse in its resources, but it doesn’t really have a lot of the ntuaral resources. Getting renewable resources from nature has increased a bunch too. Hinduism is the major religion for Indians. It sets much of their identity for the way of life. They have the Holi festival in February and March to forget social class for a day and throw colorful water and powder. They have an independance day on August 15th, and many, many festivals year round. I didn’t know before today how much variety there is in Indian agriculture and land. It varies a lot

For this research project, the country I chose to study is India. I chose India because it is a big country, with a very distinct culture, that we just don’t learn about. It would be nice to study the foriegn land.
