The Story of Diwali by Curious Neerav

Hello Everyone My Name is Neerav, I’m 10 years old and I live in Canada

This week millions of people around the world will celebrate the Festival of Lights called Diwali

Diwali is a festival of joy and prosperity, it is a celebration of victory of good over evil.

This festival is celebrated in the memory of Lord Rama who returned to Ayodhya after fourteen years of exile.

I am also super excited because every year I celebrate the Festival of Lights with my parents and friends

During this festival the entire house gets cleaned, and my mum also makes some delicious Indian treats for us and we make Rangoli together.

We also share treats with our neighbours, and. friends, wear new clothes, and pray for peace and prosperity.

So what is Diwali and why it is celebrated?

If you are curious, listen to Curious Neerav's Podcast - Season2, Episode1 - Curious about Diwali. The podcast is on Anchor, Spotify.

Thank you for listening

Wishing all my family and friends a very Happy and Joyous Diwali
