ships of the year gone by.

The next day is a day of mirth and merriment. Families come together and spread the
colours of love and joy. Organic colours called ‘Gulal’ paint the skies in a million

Celebrated all over the country, it marks the beginning of the new year according to
the Hindu lunar calendar.
Historically, the festival is celebrated to commemorate the return of Lord Ram to his
kingdom of Ayodhya after 14 years of banishment. It is believed that the whole land
was lit with earthen oil lamps or ‘diyas’ to welcome him and this tradition lives on to
this day.
On the occasion of ‘Diwali’, the family gets together to pray to the Goddess Lakshmi
(the Goddess of wealth and prosperity) to bless their home with prosperity in the
coming year. Earthen lamps and candles are lit and fireworks are set off to illuminate
the earth and the sky, alike.
Sweets and savouries are shared with friends and family and gifts of silver and jewels
