Here’s Wishing You All Happy Diwali ஜ۩۞۩ஜ

Diwali

Yesterday India celebrates Diwali, the festival of lights, which traditionally commemorates the homecoming of Hindu God Rama after 14 years in exile.  Following an old custom, people enlighten candles and oil lamps outside their houses to welcome Rama. They also set off firecrackers to celebrate Rama’s return. For many reasons, today is an occasion of joy, mirth and happiness that is celebrated as a festival of lights. Special prayers are held at temples across the country.

The Hindus celebrate this day with great zeal and fervour. Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the Hindu community and it symbolises the triumph of good over evil.

Happy Diwali to all lovely people. 🙂
