In India, one of the most important festivals is Diwali. Everyone goes to shopping one month in advance. Therefore, their diwali status may show how they are rich by money and heart. However, these traditional rituals are getting vanishing every year.

Everyone wants to go to their hometown, meet parents and old friends. We just celebrated away from our parents and relatives. The happiness was with us, for that, we started the day early in the morning on the day of Goddess Laxmi Puja.

This festival is pure of light, the entire house, doors, windows, corridor, and verandah with full of Diyas. We also put artificial light to make our home beautiful. On that day, we dress up more than in any marriage or party. And for farmers, the crop has already arrived at their home, and thus it is a big celebration for them. The most guys keep the diwali status on WhatsApp.

Every person of the house tries their best to decorate and light the house, before the season of diwali starts, they dust off the house, paint it nicely. For the entire five days, people decorate with Diyas, bulb, paintings, and the most famous Rangoli around the house. This is all being done for just to welcome Goddess Laxmi and at the evening time, Laxmi puja happens at every house devotion of gold, Money, and Diyas.

Light every diyas and placing at every door, windows and into the corridor. When these diyas placed the Laxmi enters the house—This is what we Indian thinks, the crore of people follows this holy practice traditionally. This was one of the best Rangoli of the day, it was looking so beautiful at night and quickly changed me and my thoughts.

This Rangoli was also looking great under the light of diya, as simple as it is.

Basil plant in Indian traditional way in the verandah

This is the holy basil plant everyone wants in front of their house – in front of a window or the main entrance of the house. Every day in the evening time, one diya should be placed, and a prayer must be done. But now in urban life, diwali status gradually vanishing, I find the new generation rarely keeps it in the house. However, either they don't know the benefits or the importance of it

This Rangoli was also looking great under the light of Diya as simple as it is.

This is how we decorated the entrance of Goddess Laxmi, footprints pointed inward of the house. It is a symbol of a warm welcome.

The cracker tree was looking simply so beautiful, but disappointed due to pollution. Therefore, I am not the only one, but the crore people do it, and it is very harmful to the environment. The government of India should stop burning these firecrackers, let simply burning of diyas would be no harm and looks elegant and innocent way with pollution free celebration.
