India is a place known for its diverse societies and religions and this is reflected in the various public celebrations and events celebrated over time. Among the main celebrations are the 2 Muslim Eids. For Hindus, Diwali is called the celebration of lights This celebration is celebrated by Hindus, Jains and Sikhs and symbolizes the victory of good over evil. During Diwali, individuals light diyas (oil lamps) and design their homes with bright rangolis (designs made of shaded powder) to invite Goddess Lakshmi, who is believed to bring good luck and prosperity.
