ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT DIWALI – THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

Diwali or Deepavali is amongst the most celebrated Indian festivals. The word Deepavali originates from Sanskrit where ‘ Deepa ‘ means ‘light’ and ‘Avali’ means ‘a row’. It is celebrated on the 15th day of the Hindu month of Kartik which is a new moon day (Amavasya). Diwali is colloquially known as the “festival of lights”, for the common practice is to light small oil lamps or diyas and place them around the home, in courtyards, verandahs, and gardens, as well as on roof-tops and outer walls. In urban areas, especially, candles and neon lights are substituted for diyas. Diwali is celebrated all over the subcontinent as well as in Indian communities throughout the diaspora. However, in the bustling streets of the Indian capital Delhi, Diwali is lively and much sought after. The festival is marked by the dazzling lights of firecrackers on the streets and a flourish of feasts and pujas at the home. Delhites spend a lot on gold, jewelry, clothes and gifts which they buy for themselves and their loved ones.
