Diwali - the most jubilant of the Indian festivals

While most festivals in India are local affairs, celebrated only in certain regions, Diwali truly unifies the country and is celebrated all over India as well as in Indian communities all over the world. Diwali celebrates the victory of light over darkness, which symbolises the triumph of good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. The myths and legends that surround the festival vary according to the part of India in which you find yourself, but what dominates proceedings is an affirmation of hope, a general sense of bonhomie and goodwill. There's loads of fireworks, sweets & presents are exchanged and traditional ‘diya’ lamps are lit everywhere in the evenings.
