Deepavali is a Sanskrit vocabulary meaning a ‘line of lamps’. It is one of the most popular celebrations in India. The festival generally symbolizes the victory of light over darkness. The Indian community light these lamps outside their homes as a symbol to protect them from spiritual darkness.

Let’s make this simple yet lovely paper Diya to celebrate this Festival of Light. All we need are some bright coloured papers, a pair of scissors and glue.
