• Dear PS friends,
    Happy deepavali (diwali) (deepa oli) to all.
    I am interested to know whether there is any historical
    evidence when the celebration of deepavali started
    in both south and in north India apart from mythological
    reasons. In north it goes on for five days whereas in
    south it is celebrated for one day. Fire works must
    have been started recently probably imported from china.
    Is there any evidence of deepavali during the chola
    or pallava periods ? Can anyone elicit ?

Howdy, Stranger!
