  1. This festival is celebrated on a grand scale in almost all regions of India and is looked upon mainly as the beginning of a New Year… On this day of Diwali Deepavali people light small oil lamps called diyas and place them around their homes in courtyards gardens verandahs on the walls and also on the roof tops.
