Diwali is one of the most popular festivals, celebrated in India. Diwali is also known as ‘Deepavali’ in some parts of India, which when translated, literally means ‘ a string of lights’. The origins of this festival go back into ancient Hindu mythology, when Lord Rama returned back to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile in a jungle, During that time he fought with Ravana and emerged victoriously. It is also a common belief that Goddess Lakshmi visits people’s homes on Diwali night and blesses them with wealth and prosperity. This religious festival signifies the victory of good over evil and the triumph of light over darkness.
