Dipavali is the Tamil festival of light. It is to be held from 13th to 15th November 2020. According to Hindu mythology, the gods begged Krishna to rid the world of Naraka, the demon who tormented heaven and earth. One night, Krishna beheaded the tyrant with his divine disk, or chakra. Symbolically, night represents man’s ignorance of his own divine essence, and the chakra is the knowledge that puts an end to such ignorance.
