“Diwali” is a Hindu festival celebrated all over the world. It falls on the “new moon day” of Kartikeya month. It is believed that Lord Rama returned from exile along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana after defeating Ravana. The people of his kingdom celebrated his victory and homecoming with mirth and merriment. It signifies the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and wit over ignorance.
Diwali preparations often start a month before the festival. People clean and decorate their houses. Schools and colleges usually close for the five-day festival. People wear new clothes and perform various rituals. Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, is worshipped on this day. Diwali is a time to meet relatives and friends, distribute sweets, and share food. People also celebrate by burning crackers to celebrate Lord Rama’s return and welcome Goddess Lakshmi.

1. ‘My Memorable Moment: My Birthday Party
The birthday at my school was memorable but the birthday party at my home made the day even more memorable. Also, my mother invited all my friends from school and the colony to the party.
I received so many presents and we played a lot of games. We played games like musical chairs, tag, egg-and-spoon races, and more. There were so many songs playing so everyone did a special dance too.
The highlight of my birthday party was definitely my huge birthday cake. As I love superheroes, my mother got the cake customized with the superhero theme. It was very tasty too and in my favourite flavour.
I spent a lot of time with my family and friends that day. Everyone liked the return gifts as well and went home with a big smile on their faces.
2. Essay On Clean India Green India
Clean India and Green India is national programs aimed at improving the country. In 2014, a campaign called “Clean India” was started—Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan or the Clean India Movement were the other names for this campaign. The programme was launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi by cleaning the streets. With numerous people taking part, this campaign was the biggest one ever. Garbage poses a serious danger to a country’s growth and it is also a major threat to success in the modern economy. Industrialization and commercialization have only served to aggravate this issue. Therefore, as responsible citizens of this country, it is our responsibility and duty to do everything to keep our environment clean and green.
3. If I were the Prime Minister of India:
India is a country where the government is chosen by the people. The Prime Minister and ministers are selected from among these representatives. Anyone who meets certain basic qualifications can become a Prime Minister.
If I become the Prime Minister, I will do things differently. As a servant of the people, I will be selfless, devoted, and ready to make sacrifices for their welfare.
Firstly, I will set a moral example by donating all my property to the nation and living a simple life. I will discourage corruption among politicians and officials.
Secondly, I will take measures to eliminate poverty. I will educate people about population growth and promote both large-scale and small-scale industries. Industrialization will be a priority, but I will also focus on mechanized agriculture and agro-based industries to make farming more appealing. I will ensure fair profits for factory owners.
Thirdly, I will prioritize education. I will make education compulsory and free up to higher secondary levels. The education system will be redesigned to be more job-oriented.
Fourthly, I will focus on healthcare. I will establish hospitals and dispensaries across the country, including in rural areas. I will give equal importance to allopathic, homeopathic, and Ayurvedic medicines.
Fifthly, I will work towards unity and national integration. Through these programs, I aim to satisfy the majority of people and make India truly secular, with no discrimination or special favors. I will strive for equality, liberty, and fraternity in society.
Lastly, I will make India a strong nation and pay particular attention to defence. We will manufacture advanced weapons and seek friendly relations with neighbouring countries. However, we will be prepared to protect our homeland from any threat.
