Diwali - The Festival of Lights: image wikimedia


Shubh Diwali

This year Diwali falls on November 5th.

The date is determined by the Hindu lunar calendar and there is no connection with Guy Fawkes.

According to Hindu calculations, Diwali falls on the 15th day of the dark fortnight in the auspicious Hindu month of Kartik (the month of October/November). This Diwali day falls on the amavasya or the no-moon day. Diwali  comes 20 days after the popular festival of Dussehra or Vijaya Dashmi.

A Happy Diwali to all.
