Happy Diwali!!
Saturday, October 21, 2006

Diwali, also known as Deepavali (literally means a row of lamps), is perhaps the most important and ancient of the Indian festivals. It is colloquially known as “The Festival of Lights” the time when families light small oil lamps (known as diyas) and candles around the home and set off firecrackers and fireworks.

Traditionally Diwali is celebrated for five days, each day having its own significance, rituals and myths. Though the reason for celebrating Diwali is different in different parts of India, the spirit is same for all, as Diwali signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, and renewal of life.

Wishing everyone a very happy and a safe Diwali!! Have a Blast!!
