Thoughts that form the essence of Daan Utsav
Daan Utsav is celebrated in India with much kindness, love, and excitement, just as every other festival. But what gives it a unique essence is that the Joy of Giving week is one of the rare festivals without a religious or mystical background. Instead, it’s all about giving to those less fortunate and sharing what you have.
Daan Utsav first appeared in 2009. Since then, it has always started on October 2 in honour of Mahatma Gandhi’s birth anniversary and ended a week later. There are no restrictions of any kind placed on the attendees of this huge celebration. Participants in the Joy of Giving week-long festival include business owners and CEOs, organisations and staff members, parents and children, schools and colleges.
