Happy Diwali Wishes..

May this Diwali light up all your dreams aspirations and everything you want

Ok this is for my International friends those who are less aware of what the Diwali is all about.

I say and remember Diwali as the festival of lights and sweets and crackers. I remeber my father distributing sweet packets to all our family business friends and relatives. Then we will go to buy some crackers I everytime burn my finger some how.

Ok read about diwali below

Story Behind Diwali

It is celebrated by Hindus all over the world, every year. On the day of Dipavali, old and young, rich and poor wear new dresses and share sweets. They also burn fire crackers. The North Indian business community starts their financial new year on Dipavali and new account books are opened on this day.

There are two mythological legends associated with Dipavali. The first Dipavali was held to celebrate the return of the Rama, King of Ayodhya, his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana to Koshala after a war in which he killed the demon Ravana. It was getting dark, so people along the way lit oil lamps to light their way. Second, it commemorates the killing of Narakasura, an evil demon by Lord Krishna. So Dipavali is a festival symbolising the destruction of evil forces
