Diwali is famous for several reasons. Primarily, it is renowned as the “Festival of Lights” because of the grand illumination of homes and public spaces with diyas (lamps), symbolizing the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. Diwali is also celebrated for its cultural and religious significance, marking the return of Lord Rama to Ayodhya after defeating the demon king Ravana. It’s a time for family reunions, the exchange of gifts, and enjoying traditional sweets and snacks. Additionally, Diwali promotes the spirit of unity, love, and compassion, making it one of the most widely celebrated and cherished festivals in India.
