Wish You All a Happy Diwali!

Diwali, the festival of lights means a row of lamps. It’s one of the most important festivals in India. Diwali is celebrated to mark the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. This is one festival that creates a magical and radiant effect in the atmosphere with beautiful fire crackers. That’s why it’s called the festival of lights.

Every state has their significance behind its celebration. Sweets, dry fruits and silver coins are common gifts on this occasion. Every street of north India hosts stage shows of Ramlila, a dramatic rendition of the story of the Ramayan. On the other hand, in the eastern part of the country in Bengal this festival is celebrated with Kali puja. After Durga puja, Kali puja is another important and major draw of Bengal.

The puja is held at night amidst the sound of crackers and fireworks. Though the celebration process and rituals may vary but the universal theme behind its celebration remains the same across the country. Here’s wishing you and your family a very Happy Diwali!
