“Instead of buying gold on Dhanteras, I would buy some stationary for the children who need it and give it to them. Even gestures can be golden, right? I will be more than happy to see them smiling.”

“I make my mother feel special on all occasions. My happiness and celebrations are incomplete without her. So even for Dhanteras, I take her to market and get her something of her choice. I also buy something for my god. I also gift the poor kids so that even they can enjoy the festival like us.”

“I know the first thing people think of when it comes to Dhanteras is Gold. My take is rather different; I buy a pair of warm clothes from a percentage of my income I have earned along with all the old stuff I can collect from family and friends. I also support an NGO, Aprogreentech, which helps in sanitation and recycling. It's high time we clean up our act. I'm doing my bit and enjoying the simple pleasures of life by sharing joy and happiness.”

“Every Dhanteras I get gifts from my parents. So I don’t feel the need to buy something for myself. As a ritual I am yet not the guardian of the family. So from my earning I celebrate Dhanteras with my Durgabadi (NGO) girls. Taking them to market and purchasing things for them and making it a ‘Happy Diwali’ in real sense.”

“When I see so much violence particularly in my native land Kashmir, I wish I could buy peace for my people but unfortunately it's not possible, having said that I am an optimist so I believe that eventually peace will prevail. On the occasion of Dhanteras, I will pray for them and if one must buy something on Dhanteras then I shall buy something for poor kids. May be it will just get a temporary smile, but it will definitely give me peace and good luck!”

“I had booked a SUV which will get delivered today on Dhanteras. So I will buy accessories for my new ride. But will also distribute clothes and other things to poor and needy.”

“I will try and buy gold for my mother because there is nothing more important in this world than to celebrate any occasion with her. But at same time I will make it a way to help the poor kids around the signals and make the festival special for them too.”

“I generally don't plan for such days. It goes according to my wish. Whatever I get attracted to I get it for myself. But I do buy some good clothes for the children working at signals.”
