I'd like to show you some pictures that I took during Diwali festival this year. As I live in Gurgaon, I'll show you some Gurgaon's views Smile

As you might know, Diwali is celebrated during 5 days. Diwali itself is celebrated on the new moon night of the Karttik month according to the Hindu calender. The day that comes two days before Diwali is called Dhanteras. It is believed that Lakshmi and the God of Ayurveda Dhanvantari came out of the Milk ocean during churning by surs (gods) and asurs (demons). On this day people buy some steel utensiles and a silver coin to use it then in Lakshmi puja on Diwali.

The next day is called Narak Chaturdashi. It is believed that Bhagwan Krishna killed the demon Narakasur. This day is also called Chhoti Diwali which means little Diwali. People light up diyas (little earthen lamps), mostly near the entrance gates and decorate their houses with bulb garlands Smile That's how it looked like in our neighbourhood:

Look at these footprints made with the rangoli powder. I am not sure, but I guess they are made for greeting Lakshmi, so that she could walk inside stepping onto those footprints Smile This is my guess, I hope Neel could help us out Smile
