Deepavali or better known as Festival of Lights, is the far-most widely celebrated festival of the people from the Indian sub-continent and across the whole world. Deepavali means rows of lights, it is the festival symbolizing victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.
Though there are many mythological explanations to this wonderful festival, however, in the current world what the festival of lights really stands for is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friend ship, religious tolerance, spreading the word of peace and harmony and above all, celebration of “simple joys of life”.
Just like a few other major festivals in Malaysia, Deepavali starts a day before with preparation of food, homemade cookies, crackers, decoration of interiors and exteriors of homes, loud music, smiles and laughters, gathering of loved ones and family members, and not missing out fire crackers! Fireworks and firecrackers are also lit to scare off away the evil spirits as well as contribute to the festive atmosphere. The entrances of Hindu homes are decorated with the ‘kolam’, an intricate floral design on the ground which signifies abundance and beauty.
The tradition of Deepavali goes by waking up very early to take an oil bath that is done to cleanse one of impurities of the past year. After that, families usually goes to the temple then to the graveyard to offer prayers and remembrance to family who have passed away.
They would later go back home for a traditional Indian breakfast, lunch and dinner. While, most people enjoy cooking homemade breakfasts, lunches and dinners, this can be quite tiring for our women-folks who would want to feel pampered and use that precious time to engage and connect with their relatives and friends. We at TasteBud understand your needs and have crafted out an exciting menu for our patrons around Kuala Lumpur.
Usually on the second day of Deepavali, many Hindus love to host open-house or visit their friends and family’s homes. The concept of an open-house is seen as an event where people of all races come by to mingle and celebrate Deepavali. During the open-house, families and friends enjoy singing, dancing, eating and catching up with distant family and welcoming of new family members.
