It is called Diwali, or the festival of lights, a time when Hindus all over the world pray for blessings. The scenes on your screen are from celebrations in India, which included dancing, games, skits, firecrackers, fireworks and other entertainment. It is particularly associated with Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and marks the beginning of the fiscal year in India. This special day, is widely celebrated by Indians residing all over the globe.  Similar to the Easter season, this date varies every year and falls normally between the months of October and November following the traditional Indian calendar.
