Diwali 2021: When is Diwali? Date, Time and 5 Classic Recipes for Diwali Dinner



The festive season is upon us and we are celebrating a series of back-to-back festivals. After marking Navratri, Dussehra and Karva Chauth, it is time to celebrate the festival of light – Diwali (or Deepawali). One of the most important festivals among Hindus, it is widely celebrated in every part of the country. This festival is widely associated with Goddess Lakshmi and many people worship Lakshmi on this day for wealth and prosperity. In some regions of the country, Diwali is marked as the day when Lord Rama, along with wife Sita and brother Lakshmana returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. Diwali also coincides with Kali Puja, which is celebrated throughout Bengal. Diwali basically signifies the victory of “good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance”. And people celebrate this day with a lot of fun and gaiety. Every year, according to the Hindu lunar calendar (which occurs between mid-October and mid-November), Diwali falls in the month of Kartika.
