Deepavali (Diwali), or the Festival of Lights, is celebrated by Hindus across the globe around October to November each year. They celebrate it to mark the story of Lord Rama over the Demon King Ravana, the victory of good over evil. Ravana abducted Lord Rama’s brother and wife and he rescued them. To mark their return, the people lit diyas (oil lamps) symbolising the victory of light over darkness.

Preparations begin a few weeks in advance, with people decorating their homes with flowers and rangolis, which are patterns created on the floor using coloured rice, powder, flour, sand or petals.
