The much-awaited festival of Diwali is here.
The ‘festival of lights’ is often associated with wealth and happiness.
It’s a celebration that signifies the victory of light over darkness.
The whole of India transcends into a land of lamps on this day.
Diwali is celebrated on the day of ‘amavasya’ or new moon.
Lasting for over five days, it is observed during the Hindu Lunisolar month of Kartika.
People worship Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha seeking wealth and prosperity.
According to legends, the festival marks Lord Rama’s return after defeating demon king Ravana.
To celebrate his arrival along with wife Sita and brother Lakshman, people lit lamps all over Ayodhya.
Diwali is more than just lighting diyas, wearing new clothes, decorating homes and bursting crackers.
The lighting of lamps and diyas signifies ‘leading someone from darkness to light’.
This Diwali, let the divine light of happiness spread across the globe.
