As soon as the Durga puja ends,the planning for the festival of Deepavali starts. Deepavali is the festival of lights and Diyas (Oil lamps),but in most part of India,almost every part of India celebrates it with Fire Crackers and smalls Bombs.Though it is forbidden by the Government to use it socially as its s

It needs really good imagination power and creativity.But this the best part of Deepavali apart from Lights. Whats your take about Deepavali??
