Diwali, also known as Deepawali is the sparkling 'festival of lights', celebrated all over India with great piety and enthusiasm. This festival falls on the 15th day of Kartika (October or November month) in the Hindu calendar. Diwali is one of the most popular festivals of Hinduism. Spiritually this festival signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil. Millions of Hindus around the world celebrate Diwali with gift exchanges, fireworks and festive meals. There are a number of religious significance of this festival. Diwali is celebrated to honor Lord Ramachandra. It is believed that on this day Lord Ramachandra returned to Ayodha after 14 years of exile during which, he fought and won a battle against the demon king of Lanka, Ravana. People lit their houses to celebrate his victory over evil (light over darkness). Also the goddess of happiness and good fortune, Lakshmi figures into the celebration. It is believed that she roams the Earth on this day and enters the house that is pure, clean and bright. The word diwali is derived from dipam (diya) which is known as clay lamp. Diwali is one of the happiest holiday in India. People clean their homes, decorate them for the festivities, buy new clothes for themselves and their families, as well as gifts, appliances, kitchen utensils, even expensive items such as gold jewelry, also buy gifts for family members and friends which typically include sweets, dry fruits etc. This year I have prepared a fruity flavored ladoo. The fresh coconut and pineapple ladoo with chocolate sprinkles is much easy to make and can be prepared within 10 minutes. These ladoos will give a unique flavor to your taste buds as well. Fresh pineapples or canned ones can be use for these ladoos. After making the ladoos, I just roll each ladoo with chocolate sprinkles to give some fanciness. Since the healthy and nutritious pineapple is used here, so these ladoos can be a healthy snacks for kids.
