Diwali or Deepavali, the festival of lights is here!

Today, 9 year old P.V.Keerthi Sanjana from Chennai shares a write up about why and how the festival is celebrated in south India. She is a student of NSN Memorial School, Chennai.
Hi friends, I am excited to share my thoughts about Diwali!
Diwali is a Hindu festival. It is celebrated as a mark of celebrating the death of evil Mahishasura. This day begins with oil bath and offering prayers to god. On the day of Diwali, it is compulsory that we visit the temple nearby.
Bursting crackers and enjoying delicious food makes me happy. I eat a lot of sweets on this day. My favorite sweets are Gulab Jamun and Rasagulla.
I meet my grandparents and get their blessings. My friends, neighbors and relatives also convey their wishes. I enjoy the day with lots of fun with my family.
On this special day, I gift crackers box for the children in the orphanage. This year due to Corona pandemic, I try to keep myself safe and healthy with blessings from my elders.
