Diwali is the festival of joy and happiness as it is celebrated to mark the day when lord Rama returned to Ayodhya after an exile of 14 years along with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman after killing Raavan-the evil one. The people of Ayodhya went crazy with joy and expressed it by lighting up their kingdom with diyas and bursting fire crackers.

Diwali is a festival of all good things. People do everything for either their joy or for giving joy to others. People shop for themselves and for their near and dear ones which spreads uniform joy and happiness throughout the world. The streets, markets, eating joints, offices and every nook and corner are lighted up to spread joyous spirit. No animosity prevails and a unique spirit of oneness that is established. The under privileged ones are also not forgotten but are taken care of by some of the other foundation or private organizations. The shopkeepers come out with special discounts.

The Indians believe in the true spirit of kindness and joy it brings to the giver and the taker. The spirit of Diwali breaks the barrier among the enemies and brings joy to everyone all around. Indians are also very superstitious and believe that at this hour of festivity a wrong deed will not go unnoticed by the goddess of wealth and prosperity-Lakshmi, who would in turn not bestow her blessings on them. This belief brings out the best in everyone and they do their best to spread joy and happiness all around them.

Receiving a long wanted gift give a great amount of happiness. So, a lot of time is spent in choosing the gifts. Gifts nowadays may range from dry fruits to electronics, show pieces and innumerable variety of them just to spread a smile on the faces of their loved ones.
