Diwali is the perfect time to impart India’s magnificent culture.
Diwali (or Dipawali), the biggest, most anticipated and fêted festival in India, is a five-day celebration filled with light, colour and energy. This year, the Festival of Lights takes place from October 17-21, with the main festivities occurring on the third day, October 19. The lighting of Diyas and candles all around the house, worshipping Goddess Laxmi and Lord Ganesha to summon health and wealth and bursting crackers are some of the chief rituals.
