A Sneak Peak into Udaipur’s Diwali Celebration

Article Written By : Prasun Bannerjee


Happy Diwali

Diwali or Deepawali is a festival of lights symbolising the victory of righteousness and the lifting of spiritual darkness. The word ‘Deepawali’ literally means rows of diyas (clay lamps). This is one of the most popular festivals in the Hindu calendar. It is celebrated on the Amavasya,15th day of Kartika (October/November). This festival commemorates Lord Rama’s return to his kingdom Ayodhya after completing his 14-year exile.

There might be many more definitions on the internet but here is something which relates to our very own Udaipur.

Every year the municipality takes good care of peoples’ interests, and organises the Dusshera-Deepawali fair at Town Hall for All Udaipur Citizens, The Municipality also calls out the Film and Music stars for a special performance event each night during Fair, Alongwith space for local performers too.

The main streets such as Bapu Bazar, Ashwini Bazar, Bhattiyani Choraha,etc are lit up well, and the entire view seems magical. The Udaipurites are day by day going crazy about shopping and with the entry of various showroom brands as well as shopping malls in Udaipur, the trade increases tremendously in these days,

The Auspicious Day for Shopping is Dhanteras which comes two days before diwali, This time it marked a Shopping of Worth 100Crores in Our Udaipur City.

Moreover, there is a complete arrangement for Lighting in the City, as well as fireworks at the Town Hall on Diwali Day, makes the unlightened sky without moon shine just like the daylight gleam. Every evening becomes special here; this is the charm of the Diwali celebration in Udaipur.
