The festival of lights is here! The first day of Diwali is being celebrated with zeal and enthusiasm today. Diwali starts with Dhanteras and is considered to be an auspicious day for buying gold and silver jewellery, utensils, and even electronics in a bid to welcome Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Kubera - both representing wealth and prosperity in Hindu mythology - to their homes.

' Dhanteras' means 'Dhan' (wealth) and 'Teras' (thirteenth).
