Manglore getting decked up for Diwali

The Festival of Lights is approaching. It’s time to get your sky lanterns out of the closet and give them a fresh coat of paint. I’m looking forward to Diwali’s two days. Mangalore celebrates Diwali in its own unique way. Though the festival of lights, Diwali, is observed across the country for many reasons, it is commemorated in Dakshina Kannada or Tulu Naadu to honor King Balindra, who was exiled to the underworld by Vamana, an avatar of Lord Vishnu.

Diwali festivities in this town have a distinct local flavor and cultural touch that isn’t found anywhere else in the state or country. Mangalore’s main thoroughfare is being adorned with bright lamps and lovely diyas.

Diwali is primarily considered a farmers’ holiday, and livestock receives special attention throughout the celebrations. Their cows are dressed up, given arathis, and fed sweets, grains, and fruits. It’s that time of year to get your creative juices flowing by crafting sky lanterns, also known as goodudeepa and diyas.

So enjoy the holiday, light diyas, break crackers, eat sweets until your stomach hurts, and brighten the world around you.

In advance, I wish you all a happy and safe Diwali.
