Festival of lights Diwali (also spelled Deepavali) is just round the corner, with people all over India set to celebrate the auspicious day with friends and family on Sunday, October 30, this year. The festival, which starts 18 days after Dussehra, signifies the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.

The festival begins with Dhanteras, a day when people buy new things and ends with Bhai Dooj that celebrates the sacred brother-sister relationship.

As per Hindu mythology, Diwali is celebrated to commemorate Lord Rama's return to Ayodhya with Sita and Lakshman after killing demon king Ravana. The day is also believed to symbolise Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakshmi's marriage. Meanwhile, in Jainism, Diwali is said to be the day when Lord Mahavira achieved the eternal bliss of Nirvana.
