Hello lovely people, so Diwali is a huge festival both in North and South India. So I decided that it would be interesting to write on this bright festival.
Diwali is celebrated according to the Hindu calendar between mid of October to November month. It represents the victory of good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. People light Diyas (clay lamps) and decorate their houses with them. Also it is a time of family gathering. Food and fireworks are part of this festivity.
All in all Diwali is an amazing time to be in India. This month Deepawali / Diwali falls on 30-Oct’16. If you want to know more about this beautiful 5 day long festival, make sure you click on below:
