Diwali (also known as Deepavali), the festival of lights, celebrates the victory of good over the evil. People commemorate this delightful festival by performing special Diwali prayers, lighting fire crackers, and decorating their homes with diyas and lights. Diwali is not just a single day affair, but a five-day long festival. By lighting diyas in every nook and corner of the home and premises, we try to destroy the reign of darkness, on the night of Diwali.
Earthen diyas earlier symbolised Diwali. But nowadays, decorative candles of a variety of hues and shapes have replaced the traditional lamp. Apart from being superior to diyas in terms of attractiveness, candles burn for a longer time, as compared to them.
