Diwali (Divali) or Deepavali is popularly known as "the Festival of Lights," (Feast of Light) and the word meaning of Diwali is row or cluster of lights. It symbolises the victory of good over evil, and the lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind. The festival is celebrated by young and old, rich and poor, throughout the India to dispel darkness and light up their lives. It also symbolizes unity in diversity of the country as every state celebrates it in its own special nature.
 
Diwali takes place in the month of "Karthika" (October/November), and marks both a new moon and a new year. The celebration of the four-day commences on Aswayuja Bahula Chaturdasi and concludes on Kartika Shudda Vijiya. It honors Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and good fortune and consort of Vishnu. It is celebrated with worship, ceremonial displays of lights, and fireworks to chase away the spirits of the deceased. It is also a time for financial stocktaking as well as for the exchange of gifts. The rich merchant communities of western India celebrate this festival in great style and throughout India all traders open new account books for the coming year on this day. The festival is also celebrated by Sikhs, although for different reasons from those outlined above.
