Diwali, the festival of lights, holds a special place in the hearts. As the name suggests, it is the triumph of light over darkness, the victory of good over evil, and a time for reflection, renewal, and reverence. It is a kaleidoscope of customs and colours, woven into the tapestry of Indian heritage. It's a time for families to come together, light oil lamps, and exchange heartfelt gifts. With every home adorned in the warm glow of Diyas, Rangoli, and the sweet aroma of freshly prepared sweets and savouries, it is one of the most anticipated festivals in India.
Why do we celebrate Diwali?
It commemorates the return of Lord Rama, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshmana from exile after defeating the demon king Ravana. The lighting of Diyas and fireworks bursting signify the triumph of light and righteousness over darkness and evil. Diwali is also celebrated as the festival of wealth and prosperity. Devotees believe that Goddess Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, visits their homes on this day. People light lamps and decorate their homes to welcome her and seek her blessings for a prosperous year ahead.
But in the midst of this cultural celebration, there's an aspect of Diwali that cannot be overlooked - the fashion! The festival of Diwali isn't just about illuminating the darkness with earthen lamps, it's about adorning yourself with the brightest and most glamorous attire. After all, when you're celebrating a victory of such magnitude, you've got to look the part, right?
