  7. Happy celebration though belated. I am still to learn about Diwali. Please, tell me. What is it?

    1. Hey! thanks. Diwali is celebrated to commemorate the victory of good over the evil, when Lord Rama defeated Ravana and rescued his wife Sita from his custody. It is predominantly a five-day festival, with a number of customs and rituals followed during each day. People prepare themselves for the festival weeks ahead, by cleaning and decorating their homes. Everyone dress up in new clothes on this day to illuminate their home with diyas (Light lamps made of clay). People share sweets and gifts with their relatives and friends. It symbolizes the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. It is the celebration of victory of good over evil – and the glory of light. 🙂
