Diwali, the festival of lights, is celebrated with pomp and gaiety across the country.

As per mythology it is the day when God Ram with Goddess Sita had come back to Ayodha after 14 long years of exile and to celebrate the day the people of Ayodhya had enlightened their houses with diyas.

Diwali is also the festival of Goddess Lakshmi- the goddess of wealth, and on Diwali people worship her to bring prosperity and happiness to their homes. They generally clean their houses, decorate their houses with diyas, torans and rangoli.
