Diwalior Deepavali, a word derived from Sanskrit meaning “rows of lighted lamps,” is the five-day festival of lights celebrated by millions of Hindus and Jains (which this year falls on November 14, though dates vary according to the Indian lunar calendar). 

Generally considered a celebration of new beginnings and the triumph of  light over darkness, the festival is one of the most significant in Indian culture and is marked by firework displays, which, according to legend, is to remember the celebrations which took place upon Lord Rama and his wife Sita returning to northern India from exile after defeating Ravana, the demon king.

The five days in which the festival is celebrated are as follows: Dhanteras (the beginning); Narak Chaturdasi; Lakshmi Puja (the actual day of Diwali is considered to fall on this day); Govardhan Puja, also regarded as as Annakoot meaning ‘mountain of food’; and ending on Bhai Dooj, the fifth and final day of the celebration.
