Deepavali, or better known as Diwali around the world was celebrated on 11 Nov 2015. The Festival of Lights is celebrated by all Hindus to commemorate Lord Rama and his wife, Sita’s return to Ayodhya after his 14-year exile. It was a dark night when they first returned hence his people lit their houses with little lamps (diyas) so that Rama and Sita could find their way. It is always a great spectacle of dazzling lights, events and community.
Here are some pictures of people celebrating Diwali all around the world:
