Festival of Lights
Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights (deep = light and avali = a row i.e., a row of lights) that’s marked by four days of celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy. Each of the four days in the festival of Diwali is separated by a different tradition, but what remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness.
The meaning of Diwali
The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.
Diwali celebrations started with a Diwali theme Kitty at my house. I wanted to capture all festivities and color of Diwali festival. There has been a great Diwali parties hosted with lot of enthusiasm. I am capturing every bit of Diwali celebrations that I have been invited too or hosted myself.
