Embracing the Festive Sparkles: Mark Your Calendars for Diwali 2022

The festival of lights, Diwali, also known as Deepavali, holds immense significance in the Hindu tradition, marking the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. In 2022, Diwali is set to be celebrated on Monday, October 24, according to the Hindu Lunar calendar. The festival typically falls between mid-October and mid-November.

Diwali commemorates the return of Lord Rama, along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, from his 14-year-long exile and the defeat of the demon king Ravana. To celebrate the return of their king, the people of Ayodhya illuminated the city with earthen lamps. The same joyful illumination carries through today, with homes, shops, and public places decorated with small oil lamps, candles, and electric lights.

The celebration of Diwali extends over five days and is a time for joyous gatherings with family and friends, elaborate feasts, wearing new clothes, and exchanging gifts. However, the most distinctive feature of this festival is the grand display of fireworks and the adornment of houses with colorful rangoli artworks, candle lighting, and offering prayers to the goddess of wealth, Lakshmi.

Diwali 2022 will bring with it a renewed sense of hope as it falls during a period when many are seeking light amid the ongoing challenges. It's a special reminder that light always triumphs over darkness, knowledge surpasses ignorance, and ultimately, good prevails over evil. We will come together, lighting up our homes and hearts, celebrating the victory of light amidst the dark, just like the citizens of Ayodhya did thousands of years ago.

As we prepare for Diwali 2022, let's embrace the spirit of the festival - the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil. Let's use this occasion to spread joy, peace, and positivity around us, reflecting the true essence of this beautiful festival.
