Diwali 2017

Major events occurred during Diwali 2017, Diwali 2016 and Diwali 2015. What are its significance and how do we celebrate it?

Diwali or Deepawali is the most significant festival of Indian people and all Indian originated people
living abroad. This is the only time when all the festivals seem close to nothing in comparison. Such
ethnic aroma in the air everywhere make sure you feel it to the fullest. People filled with joy and
extreme sacredness celebrate Diwali by organising social gatherings, get-togethers, giving offerings,
helping decorate their own houses, preparing for the night puja and what not.

We all know and it is believed all over India that when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya with his wife
Sita and brother Laxman after conquering Lanka and defeating its king Ravan and his army, the
entire city began to celebrate by lighting thousands of lamps, earthen pots, diyas and decorated the
entire city with lots of flowers and mesmerizing Rangolis. Their victory symbolizes victory over
darkness and evil.

At the night people worship Goddess Laxmi and God Ganesh along with God Kuber who is also
known as treasurer of gods. People worship them in order to bring peace and prosperity in their
lives as Diwali symbolizes prosperity and money comes in. People ask for successful businesses and
their work jobs. It contains a feeling of joyfulness which everybody seeks for. Everyone seems
delighted and express their happiness by distributing sweets and gifts to neighbours, relatives and
surrounding workers.

  • BHAI DOOJ WAS ON 13 TH OF NOVEMBER 2015
  •  
Its a five day continuous fest which makes it the most amazing week of the year. People begin
preparations and manage to do everything precisely to comfort themselves on the day.

The week usually starts by a day before Dhanteras to plan everything accurately and on the
Dhanteras people buy new items mainly jewelleries and gold or silver items as it is being said that
newly bought items mainly in the form of jewelleries or utensils of gold bring prosperity and good
luck in the family and strengthen the family bond which is followed by choti diwali on which Lord
Hanuman ji is worshipped and Rangolis are made at the entrance of main gate of houses and also in
the preparation of next day.
Then it is followed by Badi Diwali which is known to everyone including laxmi pooja, burning
crackers, distributing sweets and sharing of gifts etc. On the fourth day comes the Govardhan pooja
which is celebrated to worship Lord Krishna. On this day people in every household make his
lookalike structure on the clean floor and make his appearance look wonderful which is followed by
certain ritualistic steps of worshiping. Then comes the Bhai dooj which is every sister’s day. It is said that on this day the god of death and son of the sun came to meet her sister Yamuna and she marked a teeka on his forehead. After that Yamraj declared that whoever gone to their sister to meet and let her apply tilak on his forehead on this day will get good luck and a prosperous year ahead. So this is the day when they worship their brothers by doing certain ceremonies including doing teeka on their brother’s forehead and give them blessings and ask for lifelong protection and pray for goodwill of each other and at last share deliciously cooked food and sweets and gifts and exchange to each other.

Now let us take a sharp look at the most traditional Activities done at the time or during the
preparation.

1. SHOPPING

Since it is also a good luck to buy something new during the festival, taking advantage of that we
keep hopping all day around the corner. People usually buy traditional clothes and household items
including wood furniture and lighting materials are must in the category. It also includes buying
jewelleries and utensils of gold and silver.

2. CLEANING

One of the most important and effective way to feel positive and being calm is to have such place
with soothes your mind and body. Yes, cleaning the entire house before the festival helps us feel
more positive and spiritual and it makes the house more sacred and clean to practice rituals on the
very day of Diwali. One of the reason to do so is the belief that Goddess Laxmi graces and steps in
the house which is clean and sacred so people throw away old items and buy new or refurbished
ones to give their houses a cleaner look.

3. SWEET MAKING

It is more convenient and time saving to buy sweets from shops in the market but as home ladies
will never leave the pleasure to do such activities through their hands. So they buy all the basic
materials and prepare the sweets from scratch which includes Boondi ke laddu, besan ke laddu, kaju
katli, badam halva and more as you i will keep on writing.

4. WORSHIPPING

The days are for preparations and the nights are for worshiping. On the night of choti diwali lord
Hanuman ji are worshipped and on the main night of Diwali Lord Ganesh and Goddess Laxmi ji are
worshipped as they are to be and it leads to good life ahead full of happiness and prosperity.

5. GET-TOGETHERS

People arrange get-togethers and organise parties for loved ones, relatives, neighbours and friends.
Everyone participates and enjoy to the fullest without worrying about anything. And it ends up by
sharing gifts and distributing homemade sweets to people all around.
Apart from these there are also some age old traditions to make rangolis with beautiful and vibrant
colours using sooji powder, rices, wheat flour or it could be anything decorative and usually burning
of fire crackers in the name of show off. I think rangolis are a good way to celebrate festival as it is
very peaceful and fascinating not like burning crackers which leads to so much of noise and air
pollution everywhere.

Now let us take a look at the major events occurred on the Diwali 2017 at the international basis.

1. Singapore celebrated the festival with custom Diwali theme.

It is one of our closest nation in Asia which we have close ties with. We stand together for each other and respect our cultural and moral sentiments without hurting anyone’s policies. In one of the Facebook post, the Land Transport Authority of Singapore quoted as saying, “Celebrate the Festival of Lights with your own unique Deepavali commute this year! Our #Deepavali themed trains and station are back with a different but equally stunning decoration – featuring majestic elephants and
rangoli motifs that symbolise luck ✨ From now till end Oct, the themed trains will run on the North
East Line (#NEL) and Downtown Line (#DTL).”
They continued the tradition they started on Diwali 2016 and will let it continued his year also, i
guess.

2. Delhi fire department received over 200 calls on Diwali.

The fire department of the capital received over 200 calls to control fire spreading due to negligence,
carelessness and over bursting of fire crackers. The SC said the number of incidents are declined
from the previous year on Diwali 2016 due to their ban on transportation and illegal selling of fire
crackers quoting the number on Diwali 2016 as 300. Its very problematic for people to breathe in
such air and live under those conditions.

3. PM NARENDRA MODI CELEBRATED DIWALI 2017 BY VISITING GUREZ


Mr. Narendra Modi visited Bandipora district along LINE OF CONTROL in Jammu and Kashmir with the troops posted in the area. He has been celebrating Diwali in the remotest places of India where Indian Soldiers are placed.

So, today we will try to cover as much important information as possible about the festival which leads so many families to prosperity and happiness each year with its arrival.

    happy diwali

    What is Diwali or Deepawali ?

    Our brothers and sisters who are born to Indian parents need nothing to know anything more about this festival since we are born and brought up in the most secular country, India. People of any religion, cast, community, race, ethnicity, groups even Maoists and Naxalites are aware of the origin and process of celebrating Diwali. To celebrate it or not is their choice but people here are so supportive that when it comes to celebrating festivals they, irrespective of their religions, come forward and respect each other. If you aren’t aware about it and are curious to know then here you go.

    Diwali or Deepawali is a festival of lights. Every year it arrives in the month of October or November. Every household people in India starts cleaning and renovating their homes to make it more aesthetic so that they can practice rituals on the very occasion of Diwali. In broad meaning we can say it is festivals of light which lights up the whole sky with its chromatic, prismatic and most variegated sight which makes everyone blissful. But it cannot be just explained so easily. The festival of Diwali has a wonderful and very superior religious story and we will try to explain it in the best way possible.

    Diwali is a festival of Hindus, one of the four major religions in India. Millions of year ago there was a very well known king Dasrath who was very respected and loved by his country people. He got four sons from his three wives named Ram, Bharat, Laxman and Satrughan. Ram being the avatar  of Lord Vishnu is known as lord Ram. They all four were very wise and had the abilities to do the impossible. So they were taught by one of the most sharp, brilliant and exceptional rishi muni and then after getting the exceptional teaching they were all ready to rule the country. Meanwhile Ram got married to Sita, daughter of king Janak. Since the Ram was eldest among four he was going to be the next king. But one of his stepmother lured him into spending a large part of his life into Forests and got him exiled in order to let his own son sit on the throne, taking advantage of the promise, king Dasrath made to her once when she saved his life.

    happy diwaliSo, Ram was all set to start his journey accompanied by his wife and brother Laxman. On one of the struggling days in their lives living in forest, Sita got kidnapped by another king Ravan, an influential, rugged, mighty and significant king ruling the world with his extraordinary powers. So, the journey filled with struggle of Ram and Laxman along with their supporters and one of the avatar of Lord Shiva, Lord Hanumana who helped them unconditionally began. At the last, after years of fighting with each other Ram killed Ravan  and freed Sita. When they got home back after conquering Lanka, all their country people celebrated their victory by lighting up their houses with diyas, candles and lanterns, illuminating every way and cheering them unconditionally with all love and support.



    Their victory is celebrated as the festival of Diwali. This victory holds very important value in the Hindu religion and among all Indians because it also represents victory of truth over lie, light over darkness, good over evil. That’s one of the reasons why it is celebrated with such chaos and happiness all over.

    happy diwaliTherefore when this festival arrives, celebrations just become the way of life. Social gatherings happen a lot during this time. People gifts each other, to their neighbour hoods, relatives, people working staff in their surroundings and all their known-beings with extreme happiness. Wherever you go, you get filled with aroma of your surroundings to the soul. So much of positive energy, positive people spreading happiness and love, glaring each and every house in your way amazingly decorated. It just makes your week. It’s unending. You can only feel it when you are in amidst of it.


    But do your ever knew there are also other reasons why people celebrate this festival. Let’s see all the reasons to celebrate Diwali:

    Everyone knows it that when lord Rama returned Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Laxman after defeating king Ravan and winning over Lanka, all the citizens of Ayodhya celebrated and cheered lighting up the whole kingdom and getting their ruler.

     2.    When Lord Krishna killed Narakaasur.
    happy diwali
    In Tamil Nadu, it is believed or may be in other parts of the country as well that long years ago a devil named Narakaasur had caught around 16,000 women in prison. Lord Krishna killed him and liberated all of them. From that day, they celebrate this festival a day before Diwali on Narak Chaturdasi. In Goa, people burn paper clone of this devil with full excitement.

    happy diwali 3.       Birth and Marriage of goddess Laxmi (goddess of wealth).

    Also on this day, goddess Laxmi took birth as a result of Samudra Manthan between Devtas and Asuras. On the same day next year, she got married to lord Vishnu and hence bhakts celebrate it by lighting up their surroundings.
