Significance of Diwali for Indians

Diwali always has a great significance in the lives of the Indians. This is one festival in India which we all like to celebrate with lot of enthusiasm and excitement. People around India prepare for weeks to celebrate this one day. Shopping is also one thing associated with this festival. Mostly people likes to purchase something, may be small for their homes around Diwali days. Therefore, mostly a culture of Diwali bonus is very much prevalent in India. The best day for the purchasing is believed to be Dhanteras, which is celebrated two days before Diwali.

According to the Indian customs, it is believed that by buying on the dhanteras, Goddess of money, Lakshami reward the family throughout the year. Due to this reason, yesterday on dhanteras, there was big rush in most of the markets around India. However, this rush in market starts few weeks before and remains for few weeks after the diwali. Lots of the big consumer goods companies also provide attractive schemes during this season to attract people.
There also exist a custom of buying gold and silver on this festival season; however large number of Indian finds it difficult to purchase gold and silver due to the increasing prices of the gold and silver.

However, Diwali is great festival which bring with lot of happiness and hopes for the people. Like the billions of the other Indians, I am also very exciting about Diwali and try my best to make it memorable. In India, every year millions of dollars are being wasted on the fire crackers which increase the noise and air pollution and kills thousands of the innocent birds, therefore I want to request people for sensibly using the fire crackers and with the saved money try to make the lives of millions of others colourful. Happy Diwali in Advance and May this Diwali bring lot of happiness in your lives.

    Today’s the 'Festival of Lights’ all o’er;A joyful day
    for minds and hearts and souls;And people throng the Temples to offer, Prayers, resolving to take better roles.
    And most of them are richly clad and clean,And eat such dainty foods and sweets with mirth;Whilst noisy crackers burst,
    their lights are seen,It seems to be a happy day on Earth!But are there not hearts woe-filled, very sad?Denied of laughter,
    smiles for days;Today’s the triumph of Good over bad;
    But what about the wastage in much ways?
