emerged at the time of ,
Churning of the celestial milky ocean,

By the Gods n demons.

Lord Ganesh,the symbol of auspiciousness n wisdom,

Is also worshipped on DIWALI.


Lord Ganesha is the Lord of success,


And destroyer of evils n obstacles,

As teh God of education of knowledge n wealth.

The time for new especially designed dresses;

The first day is celebrated as Dhanteras,

The second day is 'Choti Diwali',

The third day is celebrated as DIWALI,

With a lot of fireworks,diyas ,candles n crackers,

On the forth day is the 'Govardhan pooja',And the fifth day is 'Bhai Dooj'.
Rangolis adorn most doorsteps on this day.

People spend a lot of money on fireworks.

The sound is an indication of joy;

Making the Gods aware of their plentiful state,

The fumes produced by the crackers,

Will kill a lot of insects,

During Diwali,everyone gets up early,

And takes an oil bath,

After doing Lakshmi Pooja,

Special rangolis are put,

The designs n vibrant colours,

Keep the evil spirits at bay.
Diwali is the grand festival,
With religious rituals n colourful ceremonies;

It is celebrated with great gaiety n fervor,

And it symbolises unity in diversity.

Illuminated a akash kandils are hung,

At the entrance of Hindu households.

With a nip in the air,

colourful sky-lanterns embellishing the exteriors of homes,

And radiate the joyful glow of the revelling members,

Strings of dazzling bulbs are woven around trees,

Rows of flickering lamps beautify the entire houses,

Children light up fire wheels that dance on the floor,

They wave sparklers in the air!

All are gearing up for the festival.

Today at the wee hours,effigies of Narakasur will be burnt,

It is the day Lord Krishna slayed the demon,Narakasur.

It is the time for family get togethers.


Diwali is the beginning of the new financial year.

Naraka Chaturdashi marks the vanquishing,

Of the demon Narakasura by Lord Krishna n Satyabhama.

Friends,remember,DIWALI is a festival of lights,

It is not afestival of noise!:)

DIWALI symbolises the victory of goodness over evil.

Let us do Lakshmi Pooja for prosperity,material abundance n spiritual upliftment.Devi is worshipped to remove troubles ththat prevent us from starting a spiritual path or business.a special worship is offered to Devi annually on this auspicious day of Diwali.Lord Ganesh is one of the five five prime Hindu deities -Brahma,Vishnu,Shiva and Durga being the other four-whose idolatry is glorified as the Panchayatana Puja.


saying prayers for the goodness,


Thanking GOD for all the smiles n blessings I received,

Thanking one and all from sache dil se,
dreaming to live with an illuminated mind,:)
requesting to light the flame in our hearts and work towards positive living
Reminding you to celebarte an eco-friendly Diwali this year as animals undergo stress with noise pollution,
appealing you guys to minimise the usage of fire crackers n by using earthern
diyas n lamps,using aakash kandeels made from paper instead of plastic n thermacol,by avoiding plastic carry bags to present the gifts in cloth or paper bags,
assuring everyone that to be with nature is a great feeling,
letting you know that anu celebrates Diwali with all of you,and u know my thoughts do brim with sincerity,
be happy as always,
with one and all,

This Diwali, I wish that you are showered with all of them.

Have a colourful, sparkling & SAFE Diwali.

My Best Wishes with Loads of Love and Luck!
May Goddess Lakshmi remove the darkness from your lives!
May in this Deepavali,all the shadows of darkness be merging into brightness......
All your health,wealth and peace of mind are on high............
Anu wishes you A very Happy and Prosperous Deepavali,
And reminds you Anu loves you dil se,

Sasneham,

Anu
