Diwali is a five day festival celebrated all over the country with great enthusiasm and joy. As a festival, there are many stories and significances that surround it. While people celebrate different days for various reasons, at the end of the day it is a time when people come together and celebrate with food and festivities.
It is a day when people wear new clothes, meet family and friends and distribute sweets to each other. People get together, eat, sing and dance, and light fireworks. Families decorate their homes in candles, lights and diyas. They welcome the goddess Laksmhmi into their homes by drawing rangolis at the entrance. Pujas are done for Ganesha and Lakshmi, to bring in good fortune, health and wealth to the family.
The most common story told during Diwali is that it marks the day when Rama, Sita and Lakshmana returned to Ayodhya after their exile. In honour of their return, people lit diyas as decoration to welcome them. In Jainism, it is said that the 24th tirthankara Mahavira attained nirvana on this day. It is also significant in Sikhism as the day when Guru Har Gobind freed himself from Jahangir’s prison and returned to Amritsar. In Bengal, goddess Kali is worshipped in a grand puja that takes place during the night instead of goddess Lakshmi.
Diwali is a day that celebrates the triumph of good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, light over darkness. The diyas are lit to dispel all that is bad in the world and to bring goodness into homes. This is a day when people look their stunning best, wearing new clothes and jewellery. You too can sparkle this Diwali with jewellery from Krishna Pearls and Jewels.
