Importance of Diwali
 
Deepavali (Diwali or Divali) is the most important and colourful festival of Hindus and the people from all age groups participate. They give ex-pression to their happiness by lighting earthen 'diyas' (lamps), decorating the houses, bursting fire crackers and inviting friends and relatives to their house for a sumptuous feast. The lighting of lamps is a way to pay respect to the God for attainment of health, wealth, knowledge and mental peace.

Divali pooja is the most important part of the festival. It is the festival of Laxmi, the Goddess of prosperity and wealth. It is believed that Goddess Laxmi visits everyhouse during Diwali and brings peace and prosperity to all.

On the night of Diwali "Lakshmi-Pujan" is performed in the evenings. A traditional Puja is performed after sunset in all the homes.

Five pieces of ghee diyas (lamps) are lit in front of the deities, naivedya of traditional sweets is offered to the Goddess and devotional songs are sung in praise of Goddess Laxmi.

After Diwali Puja people light diyas (lamps) in their homes to usher in light and clear the darkness from the world.

 
It is one time in the whole year that children volunteer to leave their beds long before the day begins. In fact, the traditional oil bath start at 3 a.m, is the only chore that stands between them and the pre-dawn adventures. They emerge, scrubbed clean to get into their festive attire, and light up little oil lamps, candles and scented sticks and setting alight crackers and sparklers.

Competition is stiff, and even the little girl in silk frocks and their finery are watching out for the best sparklers and flowerpots, the rockets and colourful Vishnu chakras, which light-up the night sky like a thousand stars. Grown-ups are the soul of generosity.
