What is Diwali Festival?

Diwali- The Festival of Lights

Festivals and colorful culture are the pride of India. There are numerous festivals celebrated here with great pomp. "Diwali- The Festival of Lights" is the major festival of India. The most awaited time of the year brings joy and happiness to the country folk. People who are relocated due to their jobs and studies get the opportunity to return to their hometowns and celebrate this festival. Diwali is the most delightful time of the year for Indians, and this festival is the symbol of good over evil, truth over falsehood, of light over darkness.

Story Behind Diwali Celebration

The story behind the Diwali celebration is based on the life journey of Lord Rama- The Prince of Ayodhya. Rama was ordered by his father Dashrath- The King of Ayodhya, to go away from the kingdom because of a plot made by Rama's stepmother and come only after 14 years. Following the orders of his father, he left Ayodhya with his devoted wife Sita and faithful brother Laxman and went to the forest where Ravana kidnapped Goddess Sita and took her to his island kingdom. Then Lord Rama battled and killed Ravana to bring Mata Sita back.

After completing the 14 years of exile, they returned to Ayodhya, where people were so excited to see their beloved and dutiful prince, so they decorated their homes most grandly and lit up the Ayodhya city with lamps, and bursting crackers to celebrate the homecoming of Lord Rama in a grand manner.

Preparation and Celebration of Diwali

As the festival of Diwali approaches, the preparations begin. People start cleaning, painting, and decorating their homes. The markets fill up with crackers, sweets, gifts, and decorative items. In almost every residence and out in the street, lamps are lit to create a glorious world of fantasy.

On the Occasion of Diwali, people distribute sweets and gifts, burst crackers with family, worship Goddess Laxmi, and pray to drive away the dark clouds of a downturn and look forward to brighter life ahead. Diwali is not only about preparations, decorations, and sharing loving moments with family and friends, but it's also a symbol of a different kind of world that we always look for, the light over darkness. Diwali is a great invitation to witness this valuable life in a fresh light.
