Diwali, also known as Deepavali is the most important and eagerly awaited festival of Hindus. The festival is also fondly called as the “festival of lights”. Although, the historic significance of Diwali speaks of several stories, primarily the festival is excitedly awaited for the crackers and also for the sparkling decorations.

The festival of lights usually falls during October- November. Although, the celebration is very close to the hearts of Hindus, the festival is equally important to the Jains as well, as Diwali marks achievement of moksha or nirvana by Mahavira in 572 BC.

Apart from India, Diwali is also celebrated with gusto in many parts of the globe like Nepal, Myanmar, Sri Lanka, Guyana, Mauritius, Trinidad & Tobago, Suriname, Singapore, Malaysia, and Fiji.

The actual name of the festival of lights is Deepavali and Diwali is a cut-short version of the name and means “row of lamps”. On this day, small clay lamps are lightened to emphasize the victory of good over evil.

Deepavali begins with Dhanteras, which is the most auspicious day for buying gold and also the Indian business groups consider this day to be very auspicious to start their financial calendar. The following day is the Naraka Chaturdasi, which marks the annihilation of the demon Naraka by Lord Krishna and his wife Satyabhama. The big day Diwali is the third day, which signifies the worshipping of goddess of wealth, Lakshami and indulging in some fireworks.

Of the many stories behind the celebration of Diwali few of them are:

  • Celebrating Lord Rama’s return to Ayodhya after his 14 years exile
  • The extermination of Narakasura by Lord Krishna and his wife Satyabhama in Dwapara Yug
  • Return of Pandavas after 12 years of Vanvas and one year of living incognito

On this day, people exchange their best wishes and warm greetings along with the exchange of festive mood and enthusiasm.
