Yes, New Norm you heard it right! This Deepavali definitely sparks different from all the celebrations we had over the years.
This Deepavali comes with an abundance of hope, togetherness, love and a pinch of pandemic effects.
The current pandemic treadmill we currently run on everyday has surely thought us well on to value life, reconcile relationships with our close ones, the originality of our nation and how we stay united with one another through it all!
Here are the best Deepavali ads done to embrace the new changes creeping into our lives, in an initiative to enlighten us better with the new happenings around us encrypting the whole year!
Light In A Time Of Darkness
No Malaysian would have never not known, this spectacular King of Magic in our country, Vikey Magic! The talented magician who has been showered with numerous respectable accolades worldwide for his talent, has been through hell and back lately, all due to the economical downturn brought by the current Covid-19 pandemic.
Despite the darkness caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic, and with His Skillful Hands, Vikey had managed to Sprinkle His Magic on The King of Fruits; Durian!
Yes folks, he has embarked on a new venture now to sell Durians with his own touch, awing fans and customers with his magic skills. Truly amazing isn’t it?!

The Guiding Light
This special story tales, on how a little boy visits an old folks home gutted to help people, and ends up helping reunite an old grandma with her loved ones. This story can move us to tears as we think about the elderly that have been left alone in old folks homes, spending significant festivities away from their families in hopes of meeting them one day, often to their own despair.
Months of lockdown at home, and we are already losing our minds with an urge to get out of our four walls to breath in fresh air, but can you for once imagine hundreds of the elderly left abandoned in old folks homes across the nation, as they wait patiently in hopes for their family to appear by their door step to meet them.
This Deepavali, as a small gesture to uplift the well being of others, lets make a meaningful initiative to visit at least one old folks home to give them a day to look forward too.
Light Of Hope
This Deepavali is not easy for many families. Most families out there would have sat about worrying on how this festival of light is going to spark up a light for them when its nothing but darkness surrounding them.
This beautifully well scripted advertisement by Sunway Group is definitely a very heart warming one that can make us shed a tear.
As each day passes by, with more bread winners of families losing their jobs, this ad depicts well on how the family strives to curb the hardship with a ray of light to brighten up their lives managing well with no complaints nor regrets.
As the saying goes, ‘a small deed goes a long way,’ let’s all come together to save up a little or share what we have to the ones striving now. A small helping hand may help them in a million ways, especially on this wondrous festive during the most dire of times!
Being an Indian, in our multi-racial society, we are often asked hundreds of questions scrutinising ourselves. We can’t help but often wonder why is Deepavali only entitled to a ‘one-day’ public holiday whereas for other festivities it’s a given two-day public holiday. I personally do not see anything wrong in this question.
Scripting all the questions we ask ourselves, answering them in a three minute video, Taylors Group has definitely come about with the most impactful add of the year!
This add does not just feature Curious Kumar, but involves each and every curious Thamizha in Malaysia.
Love Beyond Colours
Malaysia is known around the globe for the multiracial unity we adhere to despite our differences in religion, race and culture.
This meaningful consequential ad brought to you by Vanakam Malaysia, illustrates significantly on the togetherness we should always hold onto despite what comes upon us as Malaysians.
This ad teaches us that, regardless of our multiple various races, we are all classified as only one race, ‘Malaysians’!
In our various efforts for a better tomorrow, let us remember the less fortunate, the abandoned elderly, the abused animals and strays, orphans and the homeless as we usher in the festival of lights. Take a moment from our joyous occasion to lend them a helping hand.
They too are our family, our fellow Malaysians, so help them as much or the least we could do, is to show that there are people out there Who truly Care.
With the birth of a new norm Deepavali, open houses are no longer encouraged, old clothes are reused, and long drives back to our hometown with butterflies in our stomachs during the entire journey to meet our cousins, is all but just a memory now as we adhere to the Deepavali SOPs.
Well, with a long sigh but a big smile, let’s look back and appreciate on how times have changed so much now bringing us definitely closer to our families, to appreciate the food we have to fill our tummies, and having all our close dear ones tucked around us, let’s celebrate this new norm Deepavali safe and lit!
We at Varnam wish all of you a very joyous and love filled Deepavali!
