Short Paragraph on The Diwali
The Diwali festival is a very picturesque festival observed all over India. It is the festival of lights. It takes place at the same time as the Kali puja festival in Bengal, on the last day of the dark fortnight in the month of Kartick (October-November). Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped on this day. On this day, Ram returned to Ayodhya after winning over Ravana.
So, Diwali Festival is also a celebration of victory of good over evil. The main features of the celebrations are the illumination of houses with rows of lights. All the houses are lit up with thousands of small earthen-ware lamps. They present a very colourful spectacle. The lights from the houses make the streets ad lanes as bright as day. The bonfires, fire-works add grandeur to the illumination. Children and grownups enjoy fire-works and crackers alike.
The sudden sound of crackers often startles the passers-by. The cities and suburbs are full of commotion during the night. The Diwali is spoken of in Bengal as Dipanvita. It is so called from the grand illumination prevailing at night.
