The Festival Of Light

The Festival Of Light

The Festival Of Light

Diwali is also known as Deepavali, Dipavali, Dewali, Deepawali or the Festival of Lights. The origin of Diwali story is different based upon where they are from

In northern India they celebrate the story of King Rama's return to Ayodhya after he defeated Ravana by lighting rows of clay lamps.

Southern India celebrates it as the day that Lord Krishna defeated the demon Narakasura.

And in western India the festival marks the day that Lord Vishnu, the Preserver (one of the main gods of the Hindu trinity) sent the demon King Bali to rule the nether world.

Regardless of the interpretations, one common thread rings true—the festival marks the victory of good over evil.

Millions of Hindus around the world celebrate Diwali with gift exchanges, fireworks and festive meals. People lit their house with festive light to symbolizes the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness.

Diwali is celebrated over a number of days. On the first day of Diwali, people consider it auspicious to spring clean the home and shop for gold or kitchen utensils. On the second day, people decorate their homes with clay lamps and create design patterns called rangoli on the floor using colored powders or sand. The third day is the main day of the festival when families gather together for Lakshmi puja, a prayer to Goddess Lakshmi followed by mouth-watering feasts and firework festivities. The fourth day is the first day of the new year when friends and relatives visit with gifts and best wishes for the season. Finally on the last day of Diwali, brothers visit their married sisters who welcome them with love and a lavish meal.

In Singapore, it's not hard to notice a Hindu home during Diwali. Each doorway boasts a beautiful, vividly-coloured picture created out of flour, rice or flower petals. At Little India during Diwali, the streets are transformed into a fantasyland of colourful arches and stunning lights.

You can also head over to the Diwali Festival Village. This bazaar bustles with stallholders who peddle everything from festive knick-knacks to seasonal snacks

2) Hatchback

The main difference between a hatchback and a sedan is the cargo space and the cargo access. A sedan has a trunk and window in the rear where the hood of the trunk is hinged below the window. A hatchback also has cargo space and a rear window, but the trunk lid hinges above the rear window. By folding down the rear seats, the cargo space is nearly tripled of a sedan. This makes it popular vehicle among families or individuals who would like to carry a lot of gears into the vehicle.
