Diwali is an auspicious day in the Hindu calendar and it is celebrated to mark the triumph of good over evil.

It is generally celebrated over a period of 5 days, each day having its own significance.

On Diwali day most households have a special lunch and this is done so that guests can return home in time to light the diyas (an oil lamp often made from clay).

The lunch prepared on Diwali day is quite simple and nutritious, and this is done so that one can partake of all the other rich savoury and sweet dishes that are specific to Diwali celebrations. 

As much as people make Diwali out to be mostly about food, it really is all about triumph of light over darkness and it is the time to give thanks and forgiveness. The lighting of a diya is a symbol of bringing brightness into one’s life and for one to choose the path of righteousness in life.
