November 11th marks the beginning of the biggest Hindu festival of the year; Diwali. People from all over the world are celebrating Diwali today and so is Pakistan.
The day signifies the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil and coincides with the Hindu New Year. Houses are decorated with candles and colorful lights. It is also referred to as Deepavali.
For many – notably residents of northern India – Diwali is a time to celebrate the legend of Lord Shri Rama, who returned to Ayodhya after 14 years in exile, having been banished by his stepmother with his brother Laksmana and his wife Sita. While expelled in the forest, the princess was captured by Ravana, the 10-headed king of the demons. After a battle, Rama was successfully able to recapture her and the couple returned to Ayodhya for a period of rule (Ram-raj) that was said to be prosperous and untroubled. Source.
Here are some celebrities sending out their love and Diwali wishes to fans all over the world!
