Hindus Celebrate Maha Deepam Day
[Updated :: 2011-12-10 16:30:35 Hours]

Hindus all over the world on this full moon day (10th of December) celebrate Karthigai Deepam or Festival of Light. On this special day, rows of Ahal Vilakkus (oil-lit lamps) are lit by Hindu devotees in their house.

According to Hindu belief, Lord Shiva appeared as a flame or Jothi on this day and it is also known as the Maha Deepam Day.

Light gives us joy and happiness. It drives evil spirits away and bless us with love, peace and happiness.

MAY THIS FESTIVAL BLESS ALL WITH LOVE, PEACE AND JOY.
