Adda247 Wishes All its readers a very happy and fun-filled Diwali!
Diwali, the festival of lights is finally here. Deepawali is a Hindu festival celebrating the homecoming of Lord Rama observed mostly in the month of October or November every year as a religious and cultural celebration among the Hindu population of the world. This festival represents the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. On this day, Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile with his brother Laxman and wife Seeta after defeating Ravana symbolizing that truth always wins over lies. On this occasion, people decorated their houses, lit Diyas, and celebrated on the return of Lord Ram.
The significance of lighting Diyas on Diwali is reflected in the fact that the word Deepawali has itself been created from the word Deep which means a glittering lamp. Every house is decorated with vibrant and colourful lightings and flowers. Traditionally, people celebrate the festival by lighting earthen lamps with cotton wicks and candles. They also prepare a number of delicious recipes, wear traditional Indian clothes and worship Lord Ganesha and Goddess Laxmi on this day to attain good fortune and prosperity in their lives.
On this day, our beautiful mind needs to be enlightened and all the negativities like hatred, jealousy, greed, lust, and anger should burn out with the same. People also celebrate this festival by lighting up the sky in various colours, most of them forgetting that these firecrackers have a detrimental effect on our environment and the humankind as well. So, we hope our students will take up the social responsibility of celebrating the festival with peace, without polluting their surroundings.
May God bless you all with lots and lots of happiness, contentment, and prosperity in your life. Eat lots and lots of sweets, promote Green Diwali and have a safe Diwali. We wish you all the wealth and happiness on Diwali.
