Naya saal defines new beginnings - DAY 698

The day after Diwali is celebrated as the New Year by the Gujaratis. It is a day of the victory of good over evil; and symbolizes rising from darkness unto light — the light that empowers us to commit ourselves to
good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity. During these four days, lights illuminate every corner of India and the scent of incense sticks hangs in the air, mingled with the sounds of fire-crackers, joy, togetherness and hope.

The illumination of homes and firecrackers are an expression of obeisance to the heavens for the attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and prosperity.
