Jains says this is the day when Lord Mahavira attained “moksha or salvation”. Dayanand Saraswati of Arya Samaj also attained ‘Nirvana’ on this day. As the lights keep away the darkness, Goddess Kali drives away the evil forces in our world. It is five day festival it starts with “vagh baras”,”dhan teras”,”kali chaudas”,”Diwali”, “new year”all of these days people celebrate it with great enthusiasm.
The preparation starts one month before Diwali all people clean their home buy new clothes and new things.
Their joy doubles up when the relatives and cousins visit them and burn crackers with them.
Another reason for their happiness is the Diwali vacation.
It is celebrated in every nook and Corner of our country.
Thus this festival also creates a sense of oneness among the people. India has been celebrating Diwali festival for thousands of years and continues to celebrate it even today which is both historical and religious.
Diwali is the symbol of the victory of the forces of good over evil.
Thus Diwali – My Favourite Festival and I like it from when I were kid. In West Bengal and some other places in North India Goddess Kali is worshipped during the Diwali.
The only thing that comes to our mind when we hear ‘Diwali’ is lights!
The bursting of crackers, the earthen diyas, the twinkling lights says that Diwali is round the corner. The night Jasmine flower blooms and gives everyone the feel of Diwali. Diwali is one of the most beautiful festivals of India.
