India is well known for his rich cultural heritage and festivals. India is the only country in the planet, where people celebrate festivals throughout the year. Diwali is the most popular festival in India, and like other parts of the India, people of Nonihat celebrate Diwali (festival of light) with enthusiasm. A great and ancient history associated with this beautiful festival, it is the accreditation that on this day Lord Ram returned Ayodhya after assassinating Ravan and folks of Ayodhya illuminated the kingdom with earthen diyas and burst crackers.
It is also believed that it to be a celebration of the marriage of Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu. In each legend, myth and story of Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil; and it is with each Deepawali and the lights that illuminate our homes and hearts, that this simple truth finds new reason and hope. From darkness unto light — the light that empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity. During Diwali, lights illuminate every corner of Nonihat and the scent of incense sticks hangs in the air, mingled with the sounds of fire-crackers, joy, togetherness and hope.
