It literally translated means 'Row of Lights' (from Sanskrit: dipa = lamp / awali = row, line). It celebrates the victory of Goodness over Evil and Light over Darkness - it ushers in the new year. Especially for this event people are cleaning their houses and wear new clothes. Deepavali is a 4 day festival as Deepavali, Lakshmi Puja, Kartika Shuddha Padwa and Yama Dvitiya. There are many different names for the days of Deepavali (or Diwali) in different regions of India (South & North India, East & West India) and in the different languages spoken in that regions (i.e. Hindi, Urdu, Telugu, Tamil, Gujarati, Bengali). During Deepavali people pray to Lakshmi, Goddess of wealth, light, prosperity and wisdom, but also to Ganesha, the 'Remover of Obstacles' and the 'Lord of Beginnings'.


Deepavali celebrations take place in many countries in the world. On the first day of the Deepavali festival people pray and having a special breakfast made of many different foods. The Hindu Goddess Lakshmi's statue and images are carried through the streets in processions. There are various legends and stories associated with the Deepavali festival.

It symbolises the victory of good over evil. Every bit relevant today as it was thousands of years ago.


People decorate and light up their houses, using traditional Diya, pictured here, with a cotton wick dipped in vegetable oil.

Diwali also known as Deepavali and the "festival of lights", is an ancient Hindu festival celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. Before Diwali night, people clean, renovate and decorate their homes and offices. On Diwali night, Hindus dress up in new clothes or their best outfit, light up diyas (lamps and candles) inside and outside their home & fireworks follow.

At the end of this week it will be Diwali and people across the world will be out in full force celebrating!!!!...Our house has started this weekend, food is being cooked, fireworks are being bought (6 foot Chinese cracks) and the house is being decorated.


Me and my awesome sister did this in the afternoon, we made a total mess with all the paint powder, but I tried to incorporate the colours, the light and the fireworks (used sparklers).


Not much in post, just increased the exposure and clarity in lightrooms and used photoshop for the text and added a few flares.


Happy Diwali to all!!!!
