“If there were no God, it would have been necessary to invent him.”(Voltaire – French Philosopher and Writer, 1694-1778)
Dev Diwali is celebrated on the occasion of Kartik Poornima when the Ghats of Varanasi come alive in the evening when pilgrims and local people decorate the entire riverbank with thousands of Diyas (tiny earthen lamps).These lamps are lit as a mark of welcome to the Gods as it is believed that they descend on earth on that special day.Dev Diwali, celebrated on the fifteenth day of Diwali, is a tribute to river Ganga by the people of Varanasi, it is held on the full moon day in the month of Kartik (also known as Kartik Purnima) and is observed with great fanfare and feasts.
