Photographer's Note

A young boy looks at the lighted diyas as a prelude to Deepavali - the Festilval of Light. Here's wishing everyone at TE, a very happy Deepavali. May all your wishes come true:)
Deepavali has been given the traditional name of Festival of Lights because of the hundreds and thousands of small oil lamps or diyas lighted by Indian households. The burning of these diyas are considered to be the lighted pathway of a person's expression of happiness and also a manner of paying respect to God, the Supreme power for attainment of health, prosperity, knowledge, financial security and peace in one's life. Deepavali is regarded to bring the supernatural joy and brightness in a person's life with the hope of discovering light amidst darkness, achieving happiness in place of ignorance and spreading of love amidst hatred and violence.

PS : I hope to be back more frequently with some images from recent visit to Bhutan:)
