When darkness, despair and bitterness give way to light, joy and cordiality, and when everyone around us, young or aged, men or women, irrespective of age , caste, creed, and religion, come together to celebrate one night, it can’t be anything else but Diwali -the festival of lights.
Even the celestial forces conspire to keep the Moon under wraps on this night so that the lights of Diwali and smiles of all spread the message of the victory of truth over the evil, good over the bad and righteous over devil…
Mostly celebrated by Indians (traditonally Hindus), Diwali has transversed beyond the borders of South East Asia, and is now well-known all across the globe as a festival of colourful lights and joy, thanks to the thousands of Indian diaspora settled in US, Britain, Europe and other far flung regions.
The images above are my humble attempt to portray the spirit of this wonderful festival called Diwali and showcase the sparkling way of celebrating it in India.
So next time you come to India, fix it on Diwali…Surely, you shall enjoy it !
