A prelude to the burning lighting festival of Diwali, is the celebration of the Lord Rama?s homecoming to Ayodhya. The Land of Ayodhya is known to have been whitewashed in the light of millions of Diyas by the people to welcome their King Ram along with Sita Ma(Lord Rama' Wife) after the exile of 14 years. Never before witnessed was the happiness of the people and the Devtas alike.

After a mighty and ferocious battle won which is celebrated as Dusshera, Rama was instigated to the throne of Ayodhya while his brothers and step brothers stood by his side. The month of Kartik is all about the victory of Good over EVIL and tha fact that light prevails over darkness.

The may reasons that smiles happen can never be counted but the Festival of Diwali is one such for every being who celebrates it with much awaited gaiety and fervour. A child plans his cracker, while the teenagers party with friends all decked in ethnic wear, and the adults busily clean and mystify the aura of their houses and workplaces. A complete enjoyment where noone keeps a leg behind and blast the world with happiness.

The rangoli or the colorful pattern made on floors with flowers, colors and colorful rice adorns the door of every house. The diyas can been seen all around the niches of the house. Strings of lights hang from the windows and terraces. The world is brigther than the sky today, on the no moon night. Sweets like Gujiya, Halwa are specially made of friends who would be visiting each other and so much more.

In India be an Indian, and you are sure to enjoy everyday like it?s a festival today. As such we too celebrate Diwali and are super excited about all the decor at the SHRI Offices and selfies that are about to take place. Do Read about Lakshmi Puja and the 3rd Day of Diwali.
