The ultimate victory of good over evil just like the light conquers over darkness is signified by the Diwali celebration. According to Hindu mythology, in the honor of Lord Rama’s return to Ayodhya and coronation after an exile of 14 years, the Diwali festival is celebrated. To seek blessings from Devi Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity, devotees do Lakshmi Puja, on the occasion. Lord Ganesha is also worshiped as he is considered the God of Good Luck and obstacle remover (Vighnaharta). (Image Source: PujaShoppe) The word “Deepavali” derives its name from the words – Deepa (clay lamps) and Avali (the row). Diwali is a Sanskrit word meaning “series of lights”. The Diwali festival is also called Dipotsavam. It translated to the meaning to “festival of lights”. The main festival night of Diwali falls on the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika in Bikram Sambat calendar (the month of Aippasi in Tamil Calendar). As per Gregorian calendar, it corresponds to October or November.

Diwali is widely celebrated as the homecoming of Lord Rama with his wife, Goddess Sita to Ayodhya in Hinduism. After completing his exile of fourteen years, he returned to the kingdom, much to the joy of his followers, which saw him kill devil king Ravana and establish Dharma in the world. Diwali is also celebrated as an occasion when Lord Rama was coronated. Diwali is celebrated to honor Lord Krishna who defeated the demon Narakasura in South India. The diwali celebrations are also equally important among the non-Hindus. Diwali marks the nirvana or spiritual awakening of Lord Mahavira in Jainism and the festival marks the day when Guru Hargobind Ji, the Sixth Sikh Guru was freed from imprisonment in Sikhism. The significance remains same - victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance, no matter the the legends and stories behind the celebration of Delhi might be different. Diwali has long been a national holiday not only in India but also an official holiday for main Diwali day is declared in other countries such as Fiji, Guyana, Malaysia, Mauritius, Myanmar, Nepal, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Suriname, Trinidad and Tobago, and recently Sindh Province in Pakistan.

AP CM Finds Excuses For Delay In Polavaram October 17, 2017 16:04

AP CM Finds Excuses For Delay In Polavaram:- Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu, apparently realizing that he might not be able to see the completion of Polavaram project by 2019, has started looking for excuses, notwithstanding his tall claims. Naidu, reviewing the progress of works on Polavaram, told the officials that he was upset with the slow pace of construction. The lack of sufficient fund flow from the Centre was cited as the main reason for the delay in the construction of Polavaram. Once the required funds are sanctioned by the central government, the project works would be completed by 2019. “Instead of going emotional about Polavaram project, we need to think practically about its completion,” he said. However, Union Water Resources Minister Nitin Gadkari said there was no delay in release of funds by the Centre. “We shall release funds within three days of the state submitting its expenditure bills on Polavaram,” he said. Naidu sought to throw the blame on present contractor Transstroy for the delay. Transstroy is owned by TDP MP Rayapati Sambasiva Rao. Naidu said as his government is unable to pay money for workers and machinery, it intended to change the main contract organization Transstroy. But the central government was reluctant to change the contractor, as it would further delay the project works. It is just that Naidu wanted that his favorite contractors be entrusted with the work. But the centre did not entertain his request. SUPRAJA
