Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It's the festival of lights (deep = light and avali = a row i.e., a row of lights) that's marked by celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy. Each of the days in the festival of Diwali is separated by a different tradition, but what remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness.

Diwali is a festival of Joy.. It is associated with the return of Lord Rama after the Vanvasa.. Since then it is observed all over India to celebrate his home coming.. In due course of time several other stories were added and the hapiness of celebration is further increased. It comes after the harvesting of first crop and most cultivators like to celebrate, as they get fresh money.. Thus it is the festival of joy.

It is a festival of joy, of light dispelling darkness, a day when sweets are distributed, a day of sparkling radiance..hope it gives to those that cannot celebrate, the joy in simply watching and enjoying
