Diwali in 2020 – A Unique Celebration; Victory for health over wealth

The festival of lights, as it’s most commonly known as, Diwali is an Indian festival celebrated across India with different versions of stories. Be it the Lord Ram’s return to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile and triumphant victory over demon Ravana or the victory of Lord Krishna over the monster Narakasur. Every region in India has its own tale of celebration. Diwali therefore is a very fascinating festival that symbolizes the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and good over evil.

It’s Diwali today but this year it just feels different. It’s that time of the year when houses are cleaned, lit with rows of oil lamps called ‘diyas’ or beautified with rangoli designs at the doorstep. Hand-made sweets are exchanged among near and dear ones and fire crackers exploding with sparkling lights in the night sky. This year however, like most say, it’s the dark year. With governments imposing restrictions on the use of explosives to social distancing making exchanging sweets even difficult, every meet and greet has become a challenge.

Diwali 2020 is all about a new way of celebration not only in India but across the globe. It’s not a dark year but a year of triumph of light over darkness. It’s a year where we care for the well-being of others and as humans become responsible to keep our surroundings healthy for the ailing. We are warriors in this battle against the pandemic and will truly come out of it successful.

Most of you would wonder how we do that. We know a way to emerge victorious effortlessly!

As we all know the most common symptoms of coronavirus are fever, sore throat and feeling fatigue. And hence as a pre-cautionary measure it is vital to build immunity and ensure the internal organs are healthy. Manuka Honey does this magic. Natural honey honed by our very friend honey bees and sourced from Manuka flowers in New Zealand, Zealandia’s Manuka Honey has been scientifically proved to build immunity and cure sore throat. Widely known for its antioxidants and antibacterial properties, it also treats everything from acne’s to improving the digestive systems. There are immense benefits of manuka honey irrespective whether you’ve been a victim to the virus or not.

Zealandia’s Manuka Honey is a perfect combination of a weapon and a shield that’s used during this war against the virus. Having both internal and external benefits, the best way to consume it is to start with a spoon a day.
