An October to Remember with SoundEagle in 2022

What’s Special about October 2022 ?

This particular October not merely ushers in a new season as the autumn or spring equinox has passed but also the first October to be free from lockdowns and travel restrictions (in most countries) ever since coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) became a pandemic ravaging humanity, even though Misquotation Pandemic and Disinformation Polemic resulting in Mind Pollution by Viral Falsity have worsened.

It is indeed the first October during which there has been the dramatic escalation of outright exploitation or oppression, heavy-handed suppression or persecution, and unmitigated invasion or annexation, all of which have transpired via or within the regulations, procedures and operations of social institutions both within and between entities, states or countries, most notably those undergoing significant disturbances or seismic shifts in their sociocultural, political and media landscapes and information ecosystems, as well as those engaging in a series of aggrieved contests and existential tussles between (the autonomy of) self-governance and (the autocracy of) an authoritarian alternative. Many regions across the globe are poised between runaway inflation and impending recession, if not already ravaged by climate change, natural disasters, energy crisis, food insecurity, economic instability and the like. The world seems to be entering into an uncharted territory of facing multiple social, political and environmental quagmires.

Moreover, the October of 2022 is the first month to enter the post-Elizabethan era in its entirety, as people bade their final farewell to Her Majesty The Queen👑 in 🌤️🌾 A September to Remember. Ongoing concerns around royal privilege and social inequality aside, there now exist the questions and challanges regarding the continuity and legitimacy of the constitutional monarchy both within and without the United Kingdom of Great Britain comprising England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, let alone the fallout from Brexit and the revolving doors of the British government and politics.

On the one hand, the passing of October marks the beginning of the festive season lasting from November to early January in the West and other predominantly Christian countries. On the other hand, October is the glorious herald of a season of vibrant festivities painting India, the world’s largest democracy, in vivid hues of joy and celebration through Navratri, Dussehra, Durga Puja, Diwali and Bhai Dooj. Around the globe, there is no shortage of October celebrations insofar as multinational festivals and holidays in October include the following:

Judaism

Hinduism

  • Navratri: celebrates the conquest of Goddess Durga
  • Diwali: mid-October–mid-November – see “movable”
  • Kartik Purnima: An additional commemoration of the Celestial Diwali, or the “Diwali of the Gods”; hence the Sanskrit appellation “Dev Diwali”, in honour of Vishnu, Kartikeya and Goddess Ganga.

Paganism

  • Samhain: 31 October–1 November – first day of winter in the Celtic calendar (and Celtic New Year’s Day)

Secular

  • Gandhi Jayanti: an indoctrinated festival; the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, falls on 2 October.
  • Columbus Day: 12 October or the second Monday in October
