The festival of lights or Diwali has always been that festive which brings hope, joy, and light in the Indian tradition. I never believed that Diwali could actually bring light into the darkness, until last year. Last year was difficult, painful, and morose for almost everyone. For people in India, who are used to celebrating two to three festivals every other month, it was hard because of COVID-19 restrictions and several lockdowns. It was a dark year indeed, with all the colorful celebrations held back and cries of people suffering heard almost every day. The cases seemed to drop down by the end of the year 2020, so the restrictions were eased for people to celebrate the festival of Diwali with a cautious mindset.
