Hii everyone !! Today’s post is about Diwali ( I know it is done ) here find some info on it :
Diwali/Deepawali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals celebrated in India . This festival usually lasts five days ( in November) . Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”. Here is the reason why Diwali is celebrated, in some regions, a celebration of the day Lord Rama returned to his kingdom Ayodhya with his wife Sita and his brother Lakshmana after defeating Ravana in Lanka and serving 14 years of exile. Diwali, celebration usually commences by cleaning our houses, renovating. On the day of Diwali decorating homes and workplaces with diyas (oil lamps) and Rangoli’s (colourful patterns made with flowers or rice powder). During Diwali, people also wear their finest new clothes and perform pooja to worship Lakshmi mata, the goddess of prosperity and wealth. People also light fireworks, and partake in family feasts, where mithai (sweets) and gifts are shared. Every one around exchange greetings with their neighbours , family and friends by wishing everyone “Happy Diwali “.

Some Bengalis ( I am one of them, I am a bengali 😁) celebrate Diwali for 3 days . The Day before Diwali is known as ‘Choddho Prodeep ‘ ( 14 diya ) or ‘ Bhoot Chaturdashi ‘ . On this day , Kali Puja is performed from midnight till early in the morning , Choddo Prodeep is observed to pay homage to 14 ancestors , requesting them to save everyone from evil spirits and ghosts . ( count the diya it’s 14 ) .On this day we Bengalees also eat a special kind of green leafy vegetable preparation “Choddo shaag’ meaning 14 leaves. and it is a super yummy dish which I enjoy eating with a little bit of Kasundi ( tangy mustard sauce).
