Diwali, the festival of lights, is a religious observance commemorated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains and some Buddhists around the world.

Diwali holds significance for a variety of reasons, but one of the core themes of the festival is the triumph of good over evil.

The festival is celebrated for five days with the last day being the main day of observance. This year the festival is celebrated on 14th November.
