Diwali Information :

Diwali, also spelled Divali, is a five-day Hindu, Jain, and Sikh religious celebration that begins on the 13th day of the dark half of the lunar month Ashvina and ends on the second day of the light half of the lunar month Karttika. (The Gregorian calendar's equivalent dates are usually in late October and November.) The name comes from the Sanskrit term dipavali, which means "lights in a row." In general, the holiday represents the triumph of light over darkness. On Thursday, November 4, 2021, the third day of Diwali will be observed.

Diwali celebrations vary according to area and culture. The most common Hindu habit is to light diyas (little earthenware lamps filled with oil) on the night of the new moon to attract Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, to visit. The goddess Kali is revered in Bengal. In North India, the festival also commemorates Rama's return to Ayodhya (together with Sita, Lakshmana, and Hanuman) after slaying Ravana, the demon king with ten heads, thereby linking the celebration to the Dussehra holiday. The event commemorates Krishna's victory over the demon Narakasura in South India. Diwali is commemorated by some as the marriage of Lakshmi and Vishnu, while others view it as Lakshmi's birthday.

Dhanteras, the first day, is dedicated to cleaning homes and acquiring tiny gold objects. On that particular day, Lakshmi is the object of worship. The second day, known as Naraka Chaturdashi or Choti Diwali, commemorates Krishna's defeat of Narakasura, as well as prayers for ancestors' spirits. Families seek Lakshmi's blessings for prosperity on the third day, Lakshmi Puja, by lighting diyas, candles, and fireworks, and visiting temples. It is the most important day of the Diwali celebrations. The fourth day, also known as Goverdhan Puja, Balipratipada, or Annakut, is the first day of Karttika and the start of the new year in the Vikrama (Hindu) calendar, honouring Krishna's victory over Indra, the god-king. Religious ceremonies are held by merchants, and fresh account books are opened. Bhai Dooj, Bhai Tika, or Bhai Bij, the fifth day, honours the kinship between brothers and sisters. On that day, sisters pray for their brothers' success and well-being.

Diwali is a festival of lights that is celebrated by visiting, exchanging presents, donning new clothes, feasting, feeding the underprivileged, and lighting fireworks (though such displays have been restricted to limit noise and other environmental pollution). Gambling is encouraged, especially in the form of card games, as a manner of insuring good luck in the next year and in recollection of Shiva and Parvati's dice games on Mount Kailasa or similar contests between Radha and Krishna. In honour of Lakshmi, the female player is always victorious

Importance of Diwali:

In Jainism, Diwali is also a significant event. The festival honours Mahavira's enlightenment and release (moksha) from the cycle of life and death, as the most recent of the Jain Tirthankaras (samsara). The lamps are lit to commemorate the light of Mahavira's divine knowledge.

Diwali is a Hindu religious celebration that dates back to the time of Lord Rama, or possibly even before that, when Goddess Lakshmi appeared as a blessing to the Gods and all humanity during the churning of the milky ocean.

Given that Hinduism is the world's oldest religion, with thousands of years of history, it's no surprise that Diwali is associated with innumerable legends. All of them, however, represent the triumph of light over darkness, of knowledge over ignorance, of good over evil, and of hope over despair.

Diwali Observance

Numerous rituals are followed during Diwali. These rituals will vary from state to state and within a state region to region.

In Chennai and Kolkata, Diwali celebrations are kept to a minimum. On the third day of Diwali, devotees in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, worship Goddess Kali rather than Goddess Lakshmi, and in Kolkata, West Bengal, devotees worship Goddess Kali rather than Goddess Lakshmi. During Diwali, most public sites are open as usual. On the eve of Diwali, the majority of restaurants, pubs, metro trains, buses, taxis, cinema halls, and shops are open as usual, as are emergency and essential services at hospitals. In most business establishments, though, more than half of the employees would be on vacation. Due to the fact that most businesspeople attend Chopda Puja and Lakshmi Puja on Diwali Day, most shops and private offices are open. Although the stock exchanges in India are closed for the Diwali holiday, they are only open for an hour in the evening for Muhurat trade. Muhurat trading is a symbolic ceremony that has been practised by traders for many years and is considered auspicious.

For the majority of large and small enterprises Diwali, like Christmas in Western countries, is a peak season when sales are at their highest. During Diwali, many Bollywood blockbusters are planned and released. However, because Diwali is a Gazette Holiday, all government offices would be closed. During Diwali, most schools and institutions are closed. In recent years, most metros have enforced a time limit for displaying and bursting fireworks in order to reduce noise pollution and allow people to sleep soundly on Diwali night. In most cases, a time constraint of 10 p.m. or 11 p.m. is established for bursting the fireworks.
