Diwali

 Like Durga Puja, Diwali is also one of the big festivals of India.  It is celebrated with great enthusiasm in our country. 


 In this, people of all castes, religions and sects participate openly and forget all the discrimination.  Hence, Diwali is one of our great national festivals.

  There are many mythological stories about the beginning of Diwali.  According to a legend, when Shri Ramchandra returned to Ayodhya after killing Ravana after 14 years with Sita and Lakshmana, lamps of happiness were lit everywhere. 

 In the memory of that victory, this Diwali was celebrated every year.  According to another legend, Diwali began on the day when Shri Krishna killed Narakasura.  In this happiness Diwali started.

  The third story is that when Lord Vishnu was pleased with Rajabali's donation, he gave a boon that all the people would light lamps of ghee in the name of sacrifice.  

There is also a legend that when Lord Shankar pacified the anger of Mahakali, since then Diwali started being celebrated.  

Whatever be the story, one thing is very clear from these things that every year Diwali comes to give a new message of life to the people of India and it tells that the victory of truth and defeat of untruth is inevitable one day or the other. 

 It removes the darkness of our life and spreads new light like sparklers.  We feel novelty within ourselves.  Even before the arrival of Diwali, people start cleaning, painting and painting their homes.

  All kinds of people, big, rich, poor, get busy in preparing for the welcome of Diwali.  Any auspicious work starts on the day of Nidiwali.  Diwali comes on the new moon night.  

The roof of the house, the balcony and the garlands of the lamps are decorated.  Children release crackers and colorful sparklers.  Light is visible everywhere. 

There is a wave of happiness on everyone's faces in this twinkling of light.  People go out of the house to see the lights and decorations of the market. 

 A few hours of the night pass by eating sweets.  Merchants and Seth moneylenders worship Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, at night, buying new clothes and utensils.
