New Delhi, India
Colorful Burst Of Firecrackers High In The Sky
Diwali is one of the most important festivals as part of the Hindu religion. As part of the festival, it has become custom to light lamps (over the ages, this has been oil lamps and now lamps / electrical lighting fixtures) around and outside the home or office establishment. As part of the mythology surrounding the festival, it celebrates the return of Lord Rama from his 14 year exile, after defeating the demon king Ravan. Diwali also marks the end of the harvest season and also invoking the blessings of the Goddess Lakshmi (Goddess of wealth) and inviting her into the home, symbolizing the prayers for inviting more wealth into the house.
This photo shows a fire cracker during the Diwali celebrations. These are the ones that are lit on the ground and go high in the sky, and burst with a whole plethora of colors in the night sky. Looks nice, but difficult to cover in a sharp way.
