L FOR LAMPS
My word for ABCwednesday is Lamps .Lamps symbolise the festival of lights in our country.
Deepavali meaning 'rows of lights 'is an important festival,celabrated with enthusiasm all over india.Deepavali symbolizes the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spirutual darkness.It is the celabration of victory of good over evil and the glory of light.Deepavali is celabrated on the new moon day in the month of october and is on 17th this year.
Indians give expression to their happiness by lighting earthen ‘diyas’ (lamps), decorating the houses,wearing new clothes, bursting firecrackers and inviting near and dear ones to their households for partaking in a sumptuous feast. It is wonderful to see the rows and rows of beautiful lamps , lighting up our homes.The lighting of lamps is a way of paying obeisance to god for attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace, valor and fame. It is not only aesthetically beautiful but has a deeper meaning to it as we are warding off the darkness of ignorance, of anger, of temptations, with the light of wisdom, love and freedom.
The festival ushers in the beginning of prosperity and abundance and an atmosphere of joy and festivity is in the air now as people prepare for the magical day.
