Deepavali - Festival of Lights

 The Indian Festival of Lights is the most widely celebrated festival of the people from the Indian sub-continent and across the whole world. Deepavali means rows of lights; it is the festival symbolizing victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. The lighting of lamps is a way of paying obeisance to god for attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace, valor and fame.
