This photograph was taken at my home during celebrations of Diwali. For Hindus, Diwali is one of the most important festivals of the year, and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes with lighting the diyas, candles and decoration light. Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (dīpa in Sanskrit: दीप) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil which is taken in photograph.
