Photographer's Note

Diwali (English pronunciation: /dɪwɑːli/)[4] also called Divali,[4] Deepavali or the "festival of lights", is a five-day Hindu festival[5] which starts on Dhanteras, celebrated on the thirteenth lunar day of Krishna Paksha (waning moon fortnight) of the Hindu calendar month Ashvin and ends on Bhau-beej, celebrated on the second lunar day of Shukla Paksha (waxing moon fortnight) of the month Kartik. Dhanteras usually falls eighteen days after Dussehra. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali falls between mid-October and mid-November.
