During all the five days of Dhanteras, Chhoti Diwali, Badi Diwali, Govardhan Pooj and Bhai Dooj, houses, temples and public places are all lit up with lights and earthen lamps. The themes of ‘victory of good over evil’ and ‘victory of light over dark’ are associated with the festival. The festival falls in the month of Karthik, according to Hindu calendar. According to the Gregorian calendar, the festival falls during the months of either October or November.
Importance Of Diwali
Diwali is a word that has been derived from the Sanskrit word Deepavali, which means a “row or a string of lights”. The word is a conjugation of “deepa” or an earthen lamp and “vali” or a continuous row or series of something. The festival falls during the beginning of autumn and at the end of summer harvest. Diwali coincides with the darkest day of the year, also known as Amavasya. This day is the darkest of Hindu lunisolar calendar. Although the festival has been known as a predominantly Hindu festival, it’s also celebrated by Jains, Sikhs and Newar Buddhists. However, the day marks different historical events and stories for all these religions.
