Ray of hope

In Hindu mythology the light signifies goodness and vitality. A traditional Puja is performed after sunset in all the homes. Ghee diyas (lamps) are lit in front of the deities, Naivedya of traditional sweets is offered to the Goddess and devotional songs- in praise of Goddess Laxmi are sung across all traditional Hindu homes. It is almost history today due to hectic life and urbanization.
