Happy Diwali....

Diwali is amongst the major festivals of India.This festival has its very own importance and it own specialities.We,Tamilians have a different approach towards this festival.This is a festival of joy and light to us.We get to share our happiness amongst our fellow neighbours.We get up early in the morning and take a traditional oil bath which marks the begining of diwali for south indians.After oil bath we are supposed to wear brand new dresses.We then distribute sweets to our neighbours and they reciprocate the same to us.Diwali shopping basically starts prior one week before the festival actually starts.Shopping includes various clothings and especially crackers.Crackers are an integral part of this festival.There is no diwali without festival.I remember few years ago ,we couldn't celebrate this festival owing to my grandfathers death.But after that we are continously celebrating this joyful festival of light.We light diwa's or candle near the home entrance which is a true indication of diwali.The main intention of this festival is to bring light into others life.There may be many people in distress and sorrows.This is the festival to forget all sorrows and get together and celebrate the festival.
I take this opportunity to wish all my friends and readers a very happy diwali.
