diwali_tech18Diwali, the festival of lights, is a holiday happily celebrated all over India. Indians celebrate this as a start of new year. It is a holiday similar to that of Christmas for others. During this festival, we wear new clothes, tidy our houses and decorate it with all kinds of lights, and lastly burn crackers (not recommended though).
