Diwali is the Festival of Lights, which is celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains around the world. The festival marks the triumph of good over evil and is followed by the Hindu New Year, which falls on 12 November this year.
Diwali is a colourful and vibrant occasion and signifies the return of Rama to his kingdom following 14 years in exile. It is celebrated with prayers, firework displays, vivid Indian floor art called Rangoli and the lighting of earthenware oil lamps (known as diyas) to invite Lakshmi (the goddess of wealth) into people’s homes.
