My home country is famous for its diverse culture and heritage, It is known as land of festivals and celebrations. People here give importance to religious and historical events. They celebrate them as a mark of remembrance of events. Many festivals are celebrated here like Holi, Baisakhi, Is, Dussehra,Christmas and many more. But the festival which has a paramount significance is Diwali.
Diwali is known to be festival of lights. Hindus celebrate it with great enthusiasm. It comes in the month of October or November, 20 days after Dussehra. People start preparing for this festival in advance. They clean and decorate their houses, buy new clothes, utensils and jewellery. Not Only this, markets and shops are also well decorated for this Gala day. The festival has a connection with the great Epic ‘Ramayana’. As Lord Rama returned on this day after 14 years of exile with his wife sita and younger brother Laxmana, so people of his kingdom celebrated his return with great joy and happiness by lighting earthen lamps and distributing sweets.
People wear new clothes, worship the Goddess of wealth Laxmi, exchange sweets and gifts with their friends, relatives and neighbours. Children enjoy this festival by bursting crackers. I also follow all traditions, customs and rituals to celebrate this festival . I also like it most due to its importance, sanctity and auspiciousness.
One thing I dislike about this holy day is that some people indulge themselves in drinking and gambling which is really very bad. The other thing is that just to have fun, people burst crackers of high noise bombs which create noise as well as air pollution.
