Very soon, it’s going to look like Milky Way has fallen on earth – it’s just that time of the year. No matter how different one part of the country is from another, we believe it’s the festival that marks the triumph of light over darkness.  Look out of your window tonight, there won’t be a single balcony without fairy lights on them. It’s Diwali, so let there be light.

 

 

 

 

 

In north India, Diwali is the celebration of Lord Rama’s return to Ayodhya. South Indians celebrate it as the day Lord Kirshna defeated the demon Narakasura. In western India, Diwali marks the day when Lord Vishnu sent the demon king Bali to rule the underworld. And it’s not even just Hindus who have a reason to celebrate the day. For Jains, the marks the spiritual awakening of Lord Mahavira on 15 October, 527 B.C. for Sikhs, it is the day when Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Guru was freed from imprisonment. But we all have one thing in common – we light up our homes, our cities, and the entire country is literally lit AF.

 

 

 

 

 

 

As we hit the Diwali week, it’s just lights on our mind and we can’t help but think about nature often exhibits the essence of the festival. A starfish lighting up a part of the depths of the dark ocean at night, a chiaros quoro of bedazzling lights on the northern skies – look around, it’s Diwali all year round.
