Diwali is a festival that is adored by almost everyone in India, regardless of what religion or caste they are of. The aura is totally different around the time of Diwali. Children are excited to burst crackers, the grownups are excited for the Diwali shopping and the elders are excited about their Diwali bonuses. Everyone has their own reason of happiness around this time apart from the excitement of the festival itself. This Diwali, plan on to go to the city of lakes in India and to witness one of the most spectacular events that has been taking place which still hasn’t batted an eye of the masses. It is the Lantern Festival of Udaipur on 15th October.
The Lantern Festival is taking place in Udaipur since the last few years and trust me, it is nothing less than magical. They “If you light a lantern for someone else, it automatically lights up your path too.” This event is organized on a huge ground where people get together to celebrate this auspicious festival in a little different, ecological and a sustainable way. We all are aware of the damage that is caused by the fireworks that are burnt across the time of Diwali, thus this is a new initiative taken up by the Udaipur Blog to convert people from burning crackers to rather light up a lantern to celebrate this festival of lights. This way it suffices the ultimate funda of this festival and also keeps the world a great place to live. Below are a few reasons that you must visit the Lantern Festival this year.
