The festival of Divali is celebrated by Indian people around the world, with lights, fireworks and special get-togethers. This book looks at how and why the festival is different for different people. For Hindus, the lights are a reminder of the story of Rama and Sita. For Sikhs, they recall the time when Guru Har Gobind helped some prisoners to be freed. As well as showing you some Hindu and Sikh beliefs, investigating Divali starts you thinking in general about why people have festivals.
