On our way to the mountains of north India, we happen to be in Kolkata (Calcutta) for the Diwali celebrations.
Diwali is the festival of light, probably the biggest festival in India.



Candles and floral decorations, family gatherings and fireworks galore. Beautifully dressed indians worship gods Ganesh and Lakshmi, as a new beginning of a year full of sucess and prosperity. Diwali spirit is contagious.
