Guys, you all know that Diwali (Deepawali) is the re-known Hindu festival which is celebrated with great zeal, followed by Dhanteras, Choti Diwali, Govardhan & Bhai Dauj! Not only in India, this festival is given utmost importance in other countries too!
On 24th Oct 2016, Prime Minister of Britain, Theresa May, lighten up a traditional lamp symbolizing Diwali celebrations in Britain and quoted “Now I have to say that I haven’t read all 24,000 verses in the epic poem about Lord Rama’s return to Ayodhya. But I do know the story of his homecoming from the many Diwali celebrations I have attended in my own constituency over the years,”!
It is a big thing said by foreign PM to make us understand the importance of Diwali in a Hindu culture. It shows the moral values and religious belief of the nation about the festival.
Apart from home cleaning, lighting, home decoration, Rangoli making, & goddess Lakshmi Pujan, people follow a tradition to offer snacks and sweets to their loved ones all around. While many people prefer to bring the special Indian sweets from the market, but what’s going trendy now is that young ladies are happy to prepare at least one sweet dish at home by their own.
