14 November 2020- a Day of Many Delights for me

Hey Guys!

14 November 2020, that is, today- there are four things of importance:
1. Diwali- the Hindu Festival of Lights
2. National Children’s Day
3. World Diabetes Day (Not so important, but thought you fact-loving people would want to know)
4. My father’s birthday

So, I will tell you a few things about these important dates in this post- the first two are extremely important to the Hindu Calendar.

  1. Diwali- the Hindu Festival of Lights
    Diwali is a five day festival which takes place in the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika (According to the Gregorian Calendar it takes place somewhere in October/November). It symbolises the victory of light over darkness- good over evil.
    The festival is widely associated with the Hindu Goddess Lakshmi and Saraswati and Lord Ganesha. According to some beliefs, it is also the day when Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after defeating Raavan- the demon king.
    Before Diwali, there are so many activities that take place. Houses are cleaned and decorated, rangolis -designs using colours are made and diyas– Oil lamps are lit. People wear their finest clothes during Diwali.

The five days of Diwali are named thus-

3. Badi Diwali (This is the main day and it is today)
4. Gowardhan Pooja
5. Bhai Dhuj

2. Children’s Day
This day is celebrated in honour of the first Prime Minister of India- Jawaharlal Nehru. He loved children and hence his birthday is known as Children’s Day.

3. World Diabetes Day
This day is celebrated to spread awareness about Diabetes mellitus. It is celebrated in honour of Sir Fredrick Banting who co-discovered insulin along with Charles Best.

4. My Father’s Birthday
Well, we celebrated at midnight and I baked a Cookie and Cream Cake for him. We also watched a movie together and will now celebrate further for Diwali.

So, wishing you all a very Happy Diwali and Children’s Day!!!
