Deepavali is the Indian festival of lights, usually lasting five days. Diwali symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. The festival is widely associated with Lakshmi, goddess of prosperity, with many other regional traditions. One tradition links the festival to legends in the Hindu epic Ramayana, where Diwali is the day Rama, Sita, Lakshman and Hanuman reached Ayodhya after a period of 14 years in exile after Rama's army of good defeated demon king Ravana's army of evil.
The word Deepavali comes from the Sanskrit word deep, which means an Indian lantern/lamp. Diwali festivities include a celebration of sights, sounds, arts, and flavors. Children love taking responsibility for decorating with paper art, rangoli, flower rangoli, diyas, and fairy lights.
In a bid to keep pollution in check in winters, the Delhi government has decided to make Diwali a pollution-free and eco-friendly festival. Students of Bal Bharati Public School, GRHMarg, celebrated Diwali 2020 by decorating their homes, making diyas, dancing, reciting the importance of the festival, taking the pledge for Anti-cracker campaigns.
