Diwali is India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year. The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects you from spiritual darkness. This festival is as important to Hindus as the Christmas holiday for Christians.
As much I wished to be India for this celebration, I went to an outdoor event here in California, where all Indians came together to celebrate in all it’s colors and happiness
Just being there to capture some moments
The vibrant colors of Indian fabrics
Indian sweets and other moods
May the country of India, I carry in my heart , receive the inside light all the times and may the future look bright in their souls.
