Namaskar Mandali,

We started the year 2012 with a lot of enthusiasm with our Makar Sankranti event, it is time to end this year's scheduled DVMMM events with our own Diwali program. Let us do it all together.

Yes, it is Diwali event. The festival of lights, that occurs on a new-moon day. This festival is characterized by cleanup, decoration, new clothes, Lakshmi Pujan, Rangoli & lighting, Fireworks and lot of delicacies.

According to hindu mythology, this was the day when Lord Shree Ram returned back to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile, killing the demon Ravan and winning his wife Sita back from him. The people of Ayodhya welcomed them by decorating their houses with lights. The hindus across the world still carry the tradition, year after year, combined with fireworks. The household ladies engage in coloring beautiful rangolis in front of their houses. Goddess Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity is worshipped on this day. And the best of all, all delicacies including karanji, ladoo, chiwda, chakali, shankarpala etc. are prepared and relished as "faraal" in family- get-togethers.

Generally DVMMM celebrates the Diwali event after the actual Diwali. But this year, we will have the event on the first day of Diwali, the "Dhana trayodashi" day. Let us enjoy the Diwali faraal with fellow DVMMM mandal members this year!

Please make a note of the scheduled date and time and mark your calendars.
