Diwali - Festival of Lights

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, usually lasting five days and celebrated between mid-October and mid-November. Starting on November 14th, 2020 the festival is celebrated to honor Rama-chandra, the seventh incarnation of the god Vishnu.

It is believed that on this day Rama returned to his people after 14 years in exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demons and the demon king, Ravana.

Diwali symbolizes the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. ... Diwali is the commemoration of the light of wisdom in our lives.
