Diwali: Festival of Lights Celebrated

Diwali is a festival of lights and one of the major festivals in the country. The festival usually lasts five days and is celebrated during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika. We always celebrate this beautiful festival in Snehagram. I was so excited this year to celebrate Diwali. I was really happy when I heard that Obbattu (obbattu is an Indian sweet flatbread that originates from Gujarat, Maharashtra, and southern India) was part of the dishes as it is one of my favoritesI love the display of fireworks though I always dread lighting them. It was disappointing to hear that Snehagram do not promote fireworks as it can create pollution. I learned that staying away from fireworks will surely save the environment and me and the future generation. I took delight in looking at the campus and the surroundings as they were beautifully lit with different lights. We photographed lovely images. It was a short but sweet celebration.
