    Diwali and Chhath Puja

     

     

    Diwali and Chhath festivals are the two major Indian festivals which lie in the October-November month. It is the celebration time for Indians where families reunite and love to enjoy them. Diwali or Dipawali is called the festival of lights and Chhath Puja is celebrated in the honour of Sun God which starts with Nahaye Khaye and ends with morning Arghya by offering prayer which reflects the positivity and happiness in the air. These two famous festivals create an emotional bond between families, and as a result, a huge population starts to migrate to their home state via trains and flights.
