We live in a land of stories, mythology and cultural fanfare. There are a lot of days with special significance, which we celebrate. Diwali is one of the prominent festivals in Hindu culture. Colloquially known as the “festival of lights”, it is celebrated on the Amavasya or no-moon night and heralds the dawn of a New Year according to the Hindu calendar. It is a grand celebration, wherein families get together, friends indulge in merry-making, light lamps and diyas as well as gorge on sweet delicacies.
As the mythology says, it is the night when Lord Rama retuned Ayodhya after completing his 14 years of exile in the jungles. Lord Rama also defeated and killed the evil king Ravana, who took away Sita by illegitimate means. So, till date, the entire country celebrates the home coming of Rama and the triumph of good over evil. Just like the ‘Ayodhya-Vaasi’ (people of Ayodhya), we also light up our houses with earthen lamps and glow bulbs. We also share our happiness by exchanging gifts. It is one of the most essential part of the festival.
