It’s festivals galore in the country and the festival of lights is just around the corner. Diwali is one of the most important festivals celebrated by Hindus. It symbolises the victory of good over evil and the promise of love for all. It’s also considered to be one of the biggest festivals in India wherein everyone decorates their houses with lights, lamps, and diyas, ahead of Diwali.
This year, Diwali or Deepavali is being celebrated on October 27. People buy new clothes, clean their houses, buy utensils and make some major decisions as it is considered as the most auspicious time of the year. Food is a big part of the festival as people make several kinds of delicacies from rasagullas, gulab jamuns to coconut barfi and jalebis.
The festival begins with Dhanteras which is being celebrated today. On Diwali people pray to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity and usually keep their doors open during the day. People make all kinds of rangolis with coloured powders and decorate their houses with diyas while burning firecrackers.
