Preparations for Diwali are in full swing in different states. The cities are all decked up as Diwali approaches.
People all across the country have decorated their houses with colourful lights, rangolis, and flowers to celebrate the festival of joy.
Diwali is observed on Amavasya (or the new moon), the 15th day of the month of Kartik, every year. This year, Diwali will be celebrated on November 12.
Diwali is the festival of lights. It symbolises the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.
