Last Saturday Anil and I went to his family's friends to celebrate Diwali, also known as festival of lights. It is the most important festival for Hindus. It commemorates the return of Lord Rama from the fourteen-year-long exile and vanquishing the demon-king Ravana. Diwali is very popular with children as part of the celebration includes bursting firecrackers :)
