Diwali also referred to as Deepawali and Dipawali will be celebrated on October 24 this year. It is usually celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika, between mid-October and mid-November. Diwali symbolises the spiritual victory of light over darkness and good over evil. In most parts of India, Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on Diwali, for prosperity, wisdom and wealth. This auspicious festival is also celebrated to mark the day when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita and his brother Lakshman after defeating the demon Ravana in Lanka and serving 14 years of exile.
Modern-day Diwali is celebrated by cleaning, renovating, and then decorating households and workplaces with diyas and rangolis. A festival that brings the family together that one time of the year, Diwali is extremely special for us Indians. And what is a festival without gifting?
