The time when the streets glitter with lights, the houses look pretty and everyone dresses up looking their very best to meet their family and friends and to exchange gifts, is already here. Diwali, a festival which signifies the victory of the good over the evil, is celebrated with great vigor and gusto in India.
The Origin of Diwali can be traced to the ancient Indian times. Some believe it to be the celebration of the marriage of Goddess Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu, whereas in Bengal the festival is dedicated to the worship of Goddess Kali, the dark goddess of strength. In Jainism, Diwali has an added significance to the great event of Lord Mahavira attaining the eternal bliss of nirvana. Diwali also celebrates the return of Lord Rama along with Sita and Lakshman from his fourteen years long exile and defeating the demon-king Ravana. In joyous celebration of the return of their king, the people of Ayodhya, Rama’s kingdom, illuminated the place with earthen diyas (oil lamps).
Buying new clothes, jewellery and other household products is at the peak in this season of the Indian market. People buy for themselves, and also for gifting their loved ones. Meeting friends and relatives and social get-togethers is very common near Diwali. When it comes to a festival like Diwali, everybody try their best to look their best. And if you have been wondering what you are going to wear for Diwali, here are some suggestions.
