The name Tihar means the festival of lights, where many candles are lit both inside and outside the houses to make it bright at night. The five-day festival is considered to be of great importance as it shows reverence to not just the humans and the Gods, but also to the animals like crow, cow and dog, who maintain an intense relationship with the humans.
Deepawali, the festival of Deep and Lali, the lights and colors. We all love this festival and whenever we think about it, our heart fills with joy. Bag full of sweets, forehead smeared with 7 colors, houses decorated with flowers and lights!! Ahhh! The festival in its full youth.
