Swagat ! Welcome to NewDelhi.net, the latest info guide about New Delhi, the Capital of India. Delhi is the third largest city in India and is one of the oldest cities in the world.


As fall rolls out in India, people start cleaning and renovating their houses and office premises. Everyone brings out the decorations and lightings for it is the festival of lights that is arriving! Diwali is celebrated on Amavasya – the 15th day of the dark fortnight of the Hindu month of Kartik, (October/November) every year. Diwali is derived from the Sanskrit fusion word Dīpāvali, formed from dīpa light or lamp and āvalī means series or line, Dīpāvali thus translates to “row” or “series of lights”. It is the prodigious and the brightest festival in India but its brilliance increases a hundredfold while it is being celebrated in the capital of India, Delhi where people believe Lord Rama along with wife Sita and brother Lakshman returned to his capital Ayodhya, after defeating and killing the evil King Ravana and spending fourteen years in exile.
