Diwali, the festival of lights, is celebrated all over India, mainly by the Hindus, in the month of November. It is celebrated on the occasion of the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile in the forest, and also for his victory over the demon, Ravana.
People from all walks of life, definitely makes it a point to adorn their homes with ‘diyaas’ and candles, and create ‘rangolis’ in the entrance of the houses.
People celebrate by offering prayers to Lord Ganesha and Goddess Lakshmi, and this also marks the beginning of a new financial year. People buy and wear new colorful clothes, and exchange gifts and sweets with relatives and friends and enjoy themselves thoroughly by bursting crackers.
