I want to write an article on Diwali celebration in India and need some help from anyone from India, how can tell a little bit about Diwali celebration in India. I am waiting for someone’s quick response.

Diwali is celebrated with full craze and enthusiasm throughout India. However, the festival isn't usually celebrated in the state of Kerala, as it's not part of their culture. One of the best places to experience Diwali is in the "pink city" of Jaipur, in Rajasthan. Each year there's a contest for the best decorated and most brilliantly lit up market. It's a dazzling display that attracts visitors from all over India. On the third day when actually Diwali is celebrated, lots of small clay lamps (called diyas) and candles are lit and decorated in houses, and fireworks are let off everywhere, giving Diwali its name of “Festival of Lights”. People also clean and decorate their homes with Rangoli, buy new clothes, gamble, and give each other gifts and sweets during the festival.
The customs differ according to area. However, exceptional blessings are given to Laxshmi, the Goddess of wealth and prosperity, and Ganesha, the remover of problems. The Goddess Laxshmi is supposed to have been created from the agitation of the ocean on the main Diwali day, and that she'll visit every home during the Diwali period, bringing with her prosperity and good fortune. It’s said that she visits the cleanest houses first; therefore people make sure their houses are spotless before lighting lamps to invite her in. Small statues of the Goddess are also worshiped in people’s homes.
