Diwali, perhaps the most awaited grand festival in India, is celebrated by every citizen of this country with same great zeal, enthusiasm and gaiety. It has crossed the socio-religious, cultural and even the geographical barrier successfully years ago. People of all age groups and all religions take part in this grandeur spontaneously and thus make it a national festival in true sense. People residing outside India celebrate this festival in their own way and get in touch with their families by sending Diwali gifts to India.Northern India: In this part of India, myth behind Diwali celebrations is the victory of Rama over Ravana. People of North India still continuing this tradition by burning huge effigies of Ravana. Buying of new clothes, shopping, cleaning and whitewashing home are the primary steps of celebration. On Dhanteras, purchasing of any utensil or jewellery or coins are must for the Delhi folk. Ramlila is performed in every street corners and continued for several evenings.
