Diwali: It’s time to celebrate !!

It was a dim, moonless night when Lord Ram, the ousted ruler of Ayodhya returned home alongside his wife, Sita in the wake of having vanquished the evil presence, Ravan (King of Lanka who had kidnapped Sita) and having finished 14 years in a state of banishment.

To respect and celebrate the homecoming of their lord, the general population of his kingdom lit his way with oil lights to guide him on his way. Consequently started the convention of embellishing homes and open spaces with stoneware oil lights (diyas) to stamp the triumph of good over malevolent, light over dimness and the five day festivity came to be known as Diwali or Deepawali which signifies 'lines of lights/lights'.

Diwali, the celebration of lights, is a greatly cherished celebration celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains all through the world. The celebration introduces a time of happiness – a period to delight in the organization of friends and family, spruce up in delicacy and crevasse on heavenly dishes arranged for the occasion. For weaklings like yours really, it's an event to view (never light) with honest wonderment, the brilliant firecrackers that stun the night sky and transform it into a kaleidoscope of heap shades.

Diwali is additionally a period for reflection, a period to return to and judge fairly, ones considerations, activities and words and to free oneself of the haziness and cynicism that abides inside
