Diwali…the greatest Hindu festival is one of the most celebrated festivals across the world.
It has various significances along different lines…
Historic – it marks the homecoming of Lord Ram to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile
Religious – Goddess Laxmi (Goddess of Wealth) is said to visit your home to bless you with wealth and prosperity.
For Housewives and home-makers – it’s the most tiring time of the year! Everyone is busy cleaning homes months before diwali and then in the last week its all about making sweets and decorating the house.
For small business owners – it’s the time of the year when new accounting books and ledgers are started.
For children in India (and recently in Dubai too!) – it’s all about new clothes and the Firecrackers! Its like a competition of the loudest and the brightest.
