Diwali is once of the auspicious festivals of India. It is said to be "Festival of Lights: for a reason. And that reason is that during this particular night every Indian household shines from the lights of the candles,pradeeps,and etc. It is a day when in disputes are all forgiven and forgotten.
The legend behind Diwali is related to the great Indian epic Ramayana. Ramayana returned after his 14 year exile and his homecoming and coronation was celebrated by the people of Ayodhya. This day has been celebrated ever since and and eventually it became one of India's eminent festivals. Indians rejoice on this great day.People exchange sweets and gifts with each other,love and friendship prevails.Kids burst crackers and fireworks. The whole of India seems to have received the stars from heaven by gods. The very light is reflected by their content faces.
Yes,there are many downsides of this occasion too.Pollution reaches its maximum height in India. Too many crackers causes air as well as noise pollution. People tend to ignore this,but this is dangerous and fatal,even it is for just one night. We must take care of this,as soon as we can. It is an increasing threat.
But other wise this occasion is one of the most important ones among the Indians.People who stay away from their families come home. People forget their rivalries and embrace each other. This day is the one of those where goodness is most prevalent,over evil.
