Diwali, India

On the 28th October 2008 Diwali is celebrated for five continuous days, with the third day being celebrated as the main Diwali or as the ‘Festival of Lights’. Fireworks are always associated with this festival with the main day celebrated with people lighting candles, diyas, all around their house. India is a kaleidoscope of sights, a vast palette of colours and never more so than at Diwali. A delightful time to visit India.

    Diwali, or Deepawali as it’s sometimes known, is a wonderful festival for all to enjoy. When we lived in India, we were privileged to be invited to the Gurkhas’ Diwali party every year.

    There was wonderful food, plenty to drink (mostly provided by the guests because these guys don’t have a lot of money), and they put on some great entertainment for us. Some of the teenagers, who were very talented, would recreate a few song and dance scenes from the latest Bollywood films.

    Diwali is one of these festivals you don’t want to miss if you have the chance to join in.
