Deepawali Celebrations in India on 17th October, 2009.

Diwali’, also called Deepawali or festival of ligths, is the abstraction of the Sanskrit word Deepawali – ‘Deep’ means diya (small pots made from clay) or light and ‘Avali’, means a row – meaning a row of diyas or array of lamps. Thus placing small diyas, candles & lamps inside and around the home marks the festival of lights.
