Diwali, the great gala, the great celebration, gorgeous festival is celebrated worldwide. Diwali is the festival of lights, the festival of joy, prosperity, knowledge, wisdom and everything because light indicates many things. And it is not enough if one lamp is lit, we need lots of lamps to be lit for knowledge to blossom and for the darkness to go. So that is why on Diwali lots of lamps are lit. DEEPAVALI or Diwali means “a row of lights”. It falls on the last two days of the dark half of Kartika (October-November). For some it is a three-day festival. It commences with the Dhan-Teras, on the 13th day of the dark half of Kartika, followed the next day by the Naraka Chaturdashi, the 14th day, and by Deepavali on the 15th day.
