FESTIVALS OF INDIAIn the month of October and November we have two of the mostimportant Hindu festivals – Dushera (also called Navratra) and Diwali.
NAVRATRA is a ten day festival celebrated in honour of Devi –Goddess ofHindu pantheon. There are three prime manifestations of Devi:Lakshmi – Goddess of wealthSaraswati – Goddess of knowldege, art and cultureDurga – Goddess of Shakti or Primordial energy that represents cosmicdynamics. The first nine days are observed as a period of austerity andvigilance by fasting. The last day is called Dushera.
According to the mythological tale Ramayana, Lord Rama performed aspecial Devi puja before he gained victory over King Ravana after 8 daysof battle. This victory symbolizes the reign of good over evil, and drawsimportance to the power imparted by the female energy. In Northern Indiamany folk performances are staged of Ram-Lila and they usually end withburning effigies of Ravana.
DIWALI – the festival of lights - is the most widely celebrated of all Hindufestivals. It announces the coming of winter, a relief after the monsoonsthat deluge the country.
For Hindus, it marks the time when Lord Rama returned home afterslaying Ravana and spending 14 years in exile. New clothes are worn,lamps are lit and fire-crackers launched to welcome the victorious LordRama.
Diwali is significant for mercantile communities. Businessmen open freshaccount books and start a new calendar at this time. Shops and homesundergo cleaning to get rid of the old and useless things and to welcomeLakshmi - Goddess of wealth. A lot of people also try their luck with thewealth goddess and gamble on Diwali night! MINI FELLOWSHIP NIGHTThis year, at WIN we will celebrate ‘Diwali’ at our ‘Mini-Fellowship Presidents
