No light no life:

In India, all festivals begin with lighting a lamp.

‘Festival of Lights’ or Diwali is a festival which has the potential of unifying entireIndiabecause of the charisma and splendor surrounding this festival. Diwali has been given the traditional name of ‘festival of lights’ because of the hundreds and thousands of small oil lamps or diyas lighted by many households. The burning of these lamps considered to be the lighted pathway of a person’s expression of happiness and also a manner of paying obeisance to God, the Supreme power for attainment of health, prosperity, knowledge, financial security and peace in one’s life.

No matter what the legend but the festival of lights or Diwali is celebrated with much enthusiasm and zeal in all over the country by people of all religions.

Here I begin my journey with a few light/lamp images from my archive to make it auspicious.
