Deepavali or Diwali is arguably the most celebrated Indian festival all over the world. The festival of lights is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains for different reasons but rooted its meaning in the victory of light over darkness, or goodness winning triumphing evil.
You will find millions of Indians celebrating the light festival with a fireworks display, prayers and a dinner feast including the traditional Indian sweets. Among other things to watch out for during this festival is the coming out of our favourite Bollywood and Kollywood films in cinemas. Every one of these films comes with a wonderful soundtrack, and we bring you our top picks this Deepavali. They're guaranteed to amp up the festivities and get you in a mood to party! So, how are you going to celebrate Deepavali this year? Take it up a notch this year and sing all these fantastic recommendations, which are available on Popsical!
