Diwali (also called Deepavali, à¤¦à¥€à¤µà¤¾à¤²à¥€ or à¤¦à¥€à¤ªà¤¾à¤µà¤²à¥€ ) is a major hindu, jain and sikh festival/celebration. Known as the “Festival of Lights,” it symbolises the victory of good over evil, and lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind. The reason for celebrating Diwali or Deepawali (lines of earthen lamps) is the return of Lord Ram, after killing Ravan (Demon) during his exile for 14 years.
On the day of Diwali, many wear new clothes, share sweets and light firecrackers
Happy Divali to everyone !
