“It is impossible to understand the essence of India without understanding its festivals.”
To honor the homecoming of the banished king of Ayodhya, on a dark, moonless night, the entire kingdom lit oil lamps to guide the king’s way home. Since then, Indians decorate homes, neighborhoods and public places with candles, fairly lights and earthen lamps to mark the victory of good over evil, hope over despair and light over darkness, thus celebrating one of most prominent, anticipated and enthusiastically celebrated festivals of the east, Diwali. It heralds the dawn of a new year.
