People of Ayodhya has lit Diyas in welcome of Rama at that was an Amavasa night. But now the meaning of Diwali has changed a lot. Now days Diwali is not just about lightening Diyas and spreading Happiness, Exchanging gifts or feeling blessed. Moreover Diwali has added more materialistic meaning to that. People are more joyed because a Business Man knows that this is the time for his high income, a women consider it as an opportunity of buying things and for kids Diwali is just for burning crackers which causes the most amount of air and noise pollution in contrast to whole year.
