Diwali is celebrated by lighting diyas, bursting crackers, praying Goddess Lakshmi and by presenting loved ones with gifts and sweets. In a country as large as India, like all other festivals Diwali is also celebrated in numerous ways – for a few it is a New Year, while for businessman it is starting of their financial year and a few perform Kali Puja. So this Diwali along with long weekend try to experience the festival in a way you haven’t experienced it before. Here are some of the places to check out this Diwali:
