Times Odyssey

Watch the video of Diwali celebrations around...the city. Times Odyssey (click on the link if not visible here).

Diwali is the most celebrated festival of India as it marks the beginning of a new year. The significance of Diwali, with respect to mythological importance, is related to ancient times event when lord Rama  came back to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile and in response to their return to kingdom of peace and tranquillity, the Diwali is celebrated by lighting up earthen lamps or diyas and distributing sweets as victory of light over darkness or  victory of good over evil and not the other way around.

Nowadays, on the day of Diwali, firecrackers are burnt and wishing of "happy diwali". The next day starts the new year for hindus with the wishing of "happy new year" and offering sweets to anybody who comes to your house to wish. That's the most common scene during these times...

Usually, that's how Diwali is celebrated.
