So what does Diwali in the hills look like? As the 5 days approach, the residents of these villages clear out their house and tidy it up, and some go so far as to repaint their homes entirely. For some businessmen, Diwali is also an important time to update their accounts and start fresh books for the months ahead. Praises are sung in honour of the Goddess Of Wealth Lakshmi, who is said to bless everyone’s home during the festivities. The villagers also soak rice and then powder it to turn into designs on the floor. Of course, the most conspicuous aspect of these celebrations is the numerous lamps that are lit in every household. The valley has a dim friendly glow that complements the stars, as opposed to glaring urban street lights that take away the magic.
