The meaning of Diwali
The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.
The day of Diwali prayers at my house – I usually light all my special Diya’s(lamps), which got from India by adding ghee and lit them, followed by prayers.
After Diwali celebrations at my house, off to Rashmi’s house – my dear friend who invited us with all other friends to celebrate.

Festival of Lights
Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. Itís the festival of lights (deep†= light and†avali†= a row i.e., a row of lights) thatís 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.
