This is my first ever DIY (Do It Yourself) blog post on the occasion of Diwali – a widely celebrated festival in India, Fiji, Pakistan, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. One of the major festivals of Hinduism, it spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Here’s some background information about the origin of this festival followed by a video which will help you to decorate and ignite your house with beautiful lanterns and lampshades during this festive season.
According to popular legend, when Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana returned from their 14 years of exile after defeating Raavana, the people of Ayodhya lit candles and diyas to illuminate their path and celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Deepavali is also linked to the celebration of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth and prosperity.
