“Happiness is in the air,It’s Deepavali everywhere.
An occasion to celebrate Life,Let’s show some love and Light.”
Deepavali is a festival of lights symbolizing the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness…It is celebrated with a great joy in every Autumn.
It signifies light over darkness, spirituality over evil, Knowledge over Ignorance and Hope over Despair. These are some of the clicks from this year celebration..
The Odia family remembers their forefathers by burning jute stalks singing the ritual song “Bada badua Daaka”…
Bada badua ho,
andhara re aasa,
alua re jaa
Baaisi pahaacha re gada gadu thaa.
Translating into English…
come to us in the dark evening,
we light your way to heaven.
Having Mahaprasad may you attain salvation
