Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights, is one of the most important festivals of the year in India, celebrating the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. It tops all other festivals with its long-lasting and multi-faith celebrations in India.
The importance of Diwali for Indians is like Christmas’s for Westerners.
