Deepavali is an important festival of Hindus. It is celebrated by taking
oil-bathe, wearing new apparel, consuming a rich and sumptuous feast
and firing crackers etc. Several agriculturists families
do not attach importance to this. They have neither the money
nor the time to celebrate any festival in October. Only the leisured classes
have any feeling of significance regarding Deepavali. A few wealthy people
celebrate Deepavali at Varanasi having a dip kin the Ganges.
