Former Indian batter turned politician Gautam Gambhir also wished ‘immense happiness’ to the people of the country.

“May this Diwali bring immense happiness to our country and we move forward on the path of prosperity! #HappyDiwali to one & all!” tweeted Gautam Gambhir.

Diwali is observed on the 15th day of Kartik, the holiest month in the Hindu lunar calendar and it is believed that on this day Lord Rama (the seventh incarnation of Lord Vishnu) returned from a 14-year-long exile during which he fought and won a battle against the demon king Ravan.

This year Diwali will be celebrated on Thursday, that is, November 4.

People celebrate the festival by decorating their houses, exchanging gifts, and offering prayers in order to commemorate the “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.”
