The festival of lights, Diwali, is here. On this wonderful occasion I wish all my blogger friends peace and prosperity.
As per Hindu tradition this festival marks the homecoming of lord Rama after slaying the demon Ravana. Therefore the festival in essence is celebration of restoration of good after destroying evil and etymologically Diwali means a ‘row of lights’. The houses are spring cleaned, decorated and lit with a row of lights.
I will get on with the preparations and may you all have a very Happy Diwali.
