Diwali Greetings - 2006

Wishing all the readers of my Blog - A Happy & Prosperous Diwali 2006.

Diwali (also called Deepavali, दीवाली or दीपावली in Hindi) is a major Hindu, Jain and Sikh festival/celebration. Known as the "Festival of Lights," it symbolises the victory of good over evil, and lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for mankind.

The festival marks the victory of good over evil. The Sanskrit word Deepavali means array of lights that stands for victory of brightness over darkness. On the day of Diwali, many wear new clothes, share sweets and light firecrackers.
