Happy Diwali To All

The biggest festival of India is here and I would like to wish all my readers a very Happy Diwali. Lot of people don’t know why Diwali is actually celebrated. It’s strange but I feel every Indian should know the reason for celebrating the biggest festival in India.

Diwali is celebrated because on this day, Lord Rama was back Home in Ayodhya with his wife Sita and Brother Lakshmana after 14 years. Lord Rama killed Ravana and Diwali was celebrated to welcome him in Ayodhya. We exchange sweets, and lighten up our places just like it was done in Ayodhya back then.

The word Diwali comes from Deepawali where Deepa means Diya or a lantern. Lot of people ask about acronyms for Diwali or long forms for the word Diwali but there is no such thing. I hope you guys have a blast this Diwali and enjoy it with your friends and family. Once again, have a safe and Happy Diwali!
