Finally the Festival of lights is here! Diwali holds a lot of importance across various religious communities in India for a number of reasons. While the festivities run into 4-days for some communities, for us it’s just for a day. The night before Lakshmi Pooja is the nigh before the new moon. That is the day when the people of Ayodhya were intimated of their King Rama and Queen Sita’s arrival. That’s when the festivities to bring them back home begin. Even today people put up lights and diyas to invite the gods to their house. But today the clay lamps have made way for electric lanterns. Adaptability of the modern times i guess!
