Deepavali - Festival of lights

Flower garlands Elephants on a line
More Muruku
Little Clay oil lamp burners
I was glad I could catch the last day of the Deepavali bazaar in Little India, Singapore just a day before the festival. It was the last day for vendors to sell off their goods and there were good discounts all round. Deepavali is the Hindu festival of lights and it is celebrated with Indian sweets, muruku, flower garlands, new bangles and saris and most of all, burning oil lamps to celebrate the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil.
