    Smile Happy Diwali to all of U !


    Diwali Festival Of Lights

    Diwali or Deepavali is an ancient festival that is celebrated across the Indian sub-continent. Although, traditionally a Hindu festival, Diwali has acquired a national character in India and is celebrated with gusto by people of all faiths.


    Featuring a blend of cultures and customs from across the nation, Diwali is more a time of celebration than a monotonous event. The common theme of the festival is the lighting of lamps to brightly illuminate houses at night, exchanging of gifts, buying and wearing new clothes and the stupendous bursting of crackers - a particular favourite among revellers. Diwali is celebrated through a period of five days, each of which holds a special meaning and has unique customs attached to it.

    As Hari mentioned the special importance of 5 days, I feel urged to write on that context :

    Diwali starts from the 11th day of the dark fortnight of 'Aaso' (the last month of the Hindu calender)

    11th day: 'Agyarash' - The auspicious start of the holy festival of Diwali

    12th day: 'Vaak-Baarash' - Worship to the Goddess Saraswati (Goddess of Wisdom) is done

    13th day: 'Dhan-Terash' - Worship to the Goddess Laxmi (Goddess of Wealth) is done

    14th day: 'Kaali-Chaudash' - Worship to the Goddess Kaalika (Destructor of Sins) is done

    15th day: 'Diwali' - The grand finale. Last day of the Hindu year.

    1st day of the bright fortnight of the first month, Kaartak, marks the commencement of the Hindu New Year.

    Enjoy Diwali!

    You all have a nice celebration. I might try celebrating the 13th day - maybe Laxmi helps.

    Happy Diwali to all my dear friends ..............have a great fun and enjoyment guys...
    @whs.....yeah buddy i too worship goddess laxmi specially ....Dhanteras (13th day) was yesterday, I did a lot of purchasing, in India we believe that buying new items...specially utensils and jewelry on this day brings a lot of good luck and lucky charm with them...... and the best part of Diwali is the crackers and lot of fireworks.........

    lighting of candles, a lamp or diyas on diwali will bring a lot of happiness, joy and goodluck......and it is the belief of 10 billion peoples.....

    @ Seti, why don't you all celebrate diwali with us ??
    I request to all members of this club or who read this post to en-light a candle or a lamp on the night of 17th in there home, this will bring good luck to them....and enjoy diwali with us....

    Happy Diwali !!
