Diwali, or Deepawali is India’s biggest and most important festival of the year. The festival’s name is derived from the row of clay lamps that people light outside their homes. This symbolizes the inner light that protects them from spiritual darkness. It is celebrated in October or November every year. The festival was originally a harvest festival that marked the last harvest of the year before winter. Over the centuries, Deepavali has become a national festival that unites and is enjoyed by most Indians regardless of their faith.
Did you know that in northern India people celebrate Diwali as the return of King Rama to Ayodhya after he defeated Ravana. This they did by lighting rows and rows of clay lamps which has now become a standard practice.
Chakkars or Chakras resemble a lit spinning wheel with a dazzling show of sparkles all over the floor. This firecracker is enjoyed by the young and old alike. They come in sizes ranging from small to large. When you are lighting a chakkar you must remember to keep them on an even surface on the floor. Never light them anywhere else.
