The Hindu, Jain and Sikh Festival of Lights is celebrated once a year. The most important festival in the Indian calendar, it not only a celebration of the arrival of the New Year but marks the end of harvest time and represents a time for change and new beginnings. Diwali means 'Festival of Lights' and people light clay oil lamps, let off fireworks and feast to remind themselves of the 'inner light' and to signify the triumph of good over evil.
