Today is the night before diwali, before Kali Puja Bengalis light 14 lamps or diyas at home..
Some believe the 14 lamps ward off evil spirits..💫
To overcome the negative energy 14 diyas “earthen lamps” are placed all around the house at the juncture of dusk and night..🌙
This custom is refered to as Choddo Prodeep (14 diyas) where “Choddo” indicates fourteen and “Prodeep” indicates diyas..✨
Now since I am married to a Bengali I follow these traditions..
Being a South Indian I love to light lamps for three days including diwali day, so here I am with the Diyas..🌟😍
And My diya..Rhea..
Happy Diwali again everyone..💥
