  • Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, is the most popular of all the festivals from South Asia. It is also an occasion for celebration by Jains and Sikhs.

    The festival of Diwali extends over five days. Because of the lights, fireworks and sweets involved, it's a great favourite with children.

    The festival celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance, although the actual legends that go with the festival are different in different parts of India.
