Diwali, or Deepavali, is one of the most important religious festivals of Hindus across the world. It is celebrated by people across India and also in countries like Nepal, Pakistan, Malaysia, Mauritius, etc. It falls on the day of ‘Amavasya’ or new moon. This year, Diwali is being celebrated on October 30.
The five-day celebrations is a grand affair for people, who start preparing for the festival at the onset of the autumn season. The festivities start with Dhanteras on the first day and end with Bhai Dooj on the fifth. On the third day, that is, Diwali, the entire country lights up with lights, diyas, crackers and happiness.
On Diwali, people clean and furnish their houses and decorate them with rangolis, diyas and bright lights. They exchange gifts and sweets with their relatives, friends and loved ones, and worship Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity and wealth, and Ganesha, the remover of obstacles.
