“A festival full of sweet childhood memories, Skyfull of fireworks, Mouthfull of sweets, Housefull of diyas and heart full of joy."

                     India is a diverse country known as the land of festivals. One of the important festivals of the year is Diwali or Deepawali which falls every year 20 days after the festival of Dussehra in the month of either October or November each year, depending on the cycle of the moon. It is the symbol welcoming the Goddess of Wealth (Lakshmi) to our homes and it is also a sign of victory for Divine over the evil. It is basically spreading Bright light in our lives by expelling the dark shadows (evil)side of one.
People tend to Paint their Homes, Shops, and cleanup of their houses, offices, to welcome the Goddess of wealth Lakshmi. They decorate their homes, shops with lighting lamps all over their Homes, Children’sit is just an excuse to burst a few crackers and enjoy.
People believe it is very auspicious to byNew Items to their homes and buying new things at this day would bring home the good wealth along with Goddess Lakshmi. People buy gifts, clothes, sweets, decorative things, firecrackers, Cars Electronics, Vehicles, Machines, and divas. Kids buy toys, sweets, and crackers from the market. In the evening, Lakshmi puja is held by the people at their home by lighting lamps. People take bath, wear new clothes and then start puja. After puja, they distribute Prasadand share gifts to each other. They pray to God for a happy and prosperous life. And in the last, they enjoy burning firecrackers and playing games.

  • The first day is known as Dhanteras."Dhan" means wealth and "teras" refers to the 13th day of a lunar fortnight on the Hindu calendar. This day is dedicated to celebrating prosperity. Goddess Lakshmi is welcomed into the home and gold is purchased. People gather to play cards and gamble. Ayurvedic doctors also honor Dhanvantari, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu who brought Ayurveda to mankind, on this day. There are a number of temples in Kerala and Tamil Nadu dedicated to Dhanvantari and Ayurveda.
  • The second day is known as Naraka Chaturdasi or Chhoti Diwali (small Diwali). Goddess Kali and Lord Krishna are believed to have destroyed the demon Narakasura on this day. Demon effigies are burned in Goa in celebration.
  • The third day is the new moon day known as Amavasya. This darkest day of the month is the most significant day of the Diwali festival in the north and west India. Lakshmi is worshiped on this day, with a special puja performed in the evening. Goddess Kali is also usually worshiped on this day in West Bengal, Odisha and Assam (although Kali Puja sometimes falls a day earlier depending on the cycle of the moon).

  • The fourth day has various meanings across India. In north India, Govardhan Puja is celebrated as the day when Lord Krishna defeated Indra, the god of thunder and rain. In Gujarat, it's celebrated as the start of a new year. In Maharashtra, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu, the victory of Lord Vishnu over demon king Bali is celebrated as Bali Pratipada or Bali Padyami.
  • The fifth day is known as Bhai Duj. It's dedicated to celebrating sisters, in a similar way that Raksha Bandhan is dedicated to brothers. Brothers and sisters get together and share food, to honor the bond between them.

"Diwali of flowers and colors – RANGOLI
    In the Medieval era, we use to make rangoli of Rice, Wheat, Turmeric powder, etc. and now in our modern era, we are making it with flowers and with so many different colored flowers. Some of us make it as the border at the entrance of the house and some of us show our art of rangoli by making a beautiful design in it.

“Important part of Diwali –Sweets”


For Diwali is known for lights, colors, crackers, but it is incomplete without the sweets. Every household at the occasion makes Sweets in the home and offers this to Goddess Lakshmi as Offering. Some of the sweets that are prepared at home are Karnji, Ladoos, Chaklis, Pedas, and Kaju Katli. There are so many sweets which are prepared at home and it is one of the most delicious things to taste.
