Happy Diwali, a Hindu festival in India

Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights. It’s  a five day long festival celebrated all over India with a great zeal. 

Homes are lighted up with clay diyas to expell darkness and ensure prosperity.


Each year the people of India  celebrate this festival to welcome a new ray of hope into their lives. When all negative forces are believed to be removed from one’s home and life.



People clean their home and buy new cloths, sweets, pots or jewelry for their family













It is a festival to start a fresh and welcome a new year of bliss , well being and growth to prosperity and happiness.

Happy Diwali to you India

    What vibrant and fabulous images, Cornelia. The series tells a great story. I just saw the new movie, Lion with Nicole Kidman, and the little boy dreams of eating those orange treats that you’ve photographed. Wonderful post.

    Your photos tell the story. Beautiful!

  4. Oh, those colors. Thanks for sharing, Cornelia.

  5. Festivals like this is a treat for any photographer. And you captured its energy and glow beautifully in these images. As Jill says, they tell a story.

    • Thank you Shiva, your comment means always a lot to me.

      • Cornelia I am blessed to know that.
        I always intend to come here and see your Posts, if time could permit me to do so.
        I request you to inform me of your favorite posts that you like me to see and comment. Please give me the links I shall definitely visit them.

      • Thank you Shiva, you are very kind. You are welcome to view all my posts as soon as I publish them. Is there a problem you encounter viewing my posts, just wondering. Best to you. Cornelia

      • Cornelia that is not the point, I just said if you have any favorites, I mean the older ones, I would go and see them.
        I definitely see your notifications, but it so happens if I do not see them on a regular basis they get missed out, as my older date posts, which I normally do not delete but it is always a tendency to check the newer ones and in the process the older ones go unnoticed.
        I shall keep visiting you in the normal process. If I have been lost in the so called mundane world please do make me remember, that’s all.
