  • I like to attend many events such as weddings and festivals.
  • Here I would like to talk about our national festival Diwali, which I celebrate every year with my family and friends.
  • The whole month before Diwali, we are busy in the cleaning of our home.
  • We buy gifts to give to our friends and relatives.
  • We also buy crackers to burn on that day. But this year we said a big no to crackers, because of the rising pollution.
  • On the actual day of diwali, we all family members go to the gurdwara to pay obeisance to the almighty and seek his blessings.
  • After that we go to some friends and relatives homes to present them the gifts we have bought for them.
  • Then we come home and decorate our home with candles and diyas.
  • This time my father also got some electric lights fitted in our home.
  • My mother cooks special dishes for us and we enjoy dinner.
  • We also turn on all the lights of our house and leave all the doors open because it is believed that Goddess Laxmi visits the homes on that day.
  • After that we go to our terrace and fire the crackers, which we didn’t do this year.
  • We just looked around and saw the crackers fired by others.
  • We could see our neighbours were firing crackers.
  • I felt very good as I enjoyed all that very much.
  • You know mam/Sir, Diwali holds a special significance for us.
  • It is celebrated because on this day Lord Rama returned from Ayodhya after 14 years of exile.
  • It is also celebrated because the sixth Guru, Guru Hargobindji was set free from Gwalior Jail with 52 kings.
  • On this day, the arrogant tyrant Bali was killed by lord vishnu.
  • So this is a traditional celebration, which all Indians celebrate with great pomp and show.
