Deepavali – lights, happiness and new things

Depending on which story you pick, Deepavali celebrates the return of Rama to Ayodhya after his 14 years in exile, or the slaying of the demon Narakasura by Krishna. I am sure there are other stories, often varying from one part of India to another, but irrespective of the story you pick, Deepavali is about lighting up our lives – visibly, with diyas and candles, and less visibly, by opening up our hearts – to the less fortunate, to happiness in new places and to new ways of seeing and doing.

So, here’s wishing all Women’s Web readers a very, very Happy Deepavali. Hope that it brings everyone of you good things and good times with your loved ones.

Diwali brings good things for Women’s Web too! we will very soon be going through a revamp, to address some of the issues with the site (especially in terms of search/navigation) and to significantly add to both the quantity and variety of content that we offer.

One again, wishing everyone a beautiful, fun-filled, thoughtful Deepavali!
