Hello my beautiful friends,
I have been quite quiet this week as so much time went into preparing festival of lights! So i decided to share some good energy and lovely pictures to my wordpress peeps! Deepavali is derived from Sanskrit language which loosely translates to series of lights. Deepavali is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs and some Buddhist citing various historical events pining on the date. However,they all have something in common which is to symbolize the “victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, hope over despair.”
There are many versions across India. But in TamilNadu (where my ancestors hail from ), it is said to be the day Lord Krishna defeats Narakasura (demon) that was tormenting the people on earth. The day where their many years of misery is finally lifted and became deepavali , a celebration with lights, firecrackers and sweets !
