Diwali is an ancient festival dated back to 1st millennium AD. In those time the light or diya was a representation of the sun. Sun is believed to be the energy giver to all life. It is also a light giver which can not be denied by any.

Some Hindus relate Deepavali to Nachiketa story of right versus wrong. The story spreads light over ideas like knowledge over ignorance. The story is about Yama and Nachiketa which took place on Diwali night.

Based on 7th century Sanskrit play, Deepavali is a festival where lamps were lit, and gifts were presented to new married couples. According to the 9th-century text from Kavyamimamsa, streets and homes were lit, and houses were cleaned completely. It also mentions of decorating houses in a different manner than usual.

The festival is also one of the happiest times of the year in India. Buying gifts are one thing that makes the festival the most exciting one. As you also get a lot of gifts from elders and cousins. Most people buy gold on Diwali based on their capacity. Elders of the family tell children stories of why Diwali is celebrated and an importance of it. They also tell stories of gods and fights between good and evil, and God and demons. Female members of the family draw Rangoli’s and colour it to make it look amazing outside of the house. Rangoli is drawn to welcome gods who bring happiness and prosperity to the family. It also is a good welcome for guest who comes to wish.
