Let happiness and joy light this world - Happy Diwali

Wishing all my readers a very happy, healthy and prosperous Diwali and Happy Holidays.

Diwali (also called Deepavali) is a festival of lights that celebrates the triumph of good over evil and the return of King Ram (from the Hindu mythology) to his kingdom from exile and after defeating Ravana. This is based on the Hindu mythology of Ramayana.

This is the biggest holiday of the year, just like Christmas. From modern day perspective, the holiday spirit starts off for us from here on, all the way up to new year. Yeah!  

About the snap:
I snapped this pic with a Nokia Lumia 900 at Select City Mall in New Delhi during my visit there. I came across a paper lamp shop which had a very contemporary take on lamps and lighting. Loved the stacked view of all this wonderful and colorful lamps that they had at the stall. Bob Marley, Jim hendrix and Buddha next to one another is simply ... (as John Lenon puts it) Imagine!
