Happy Diwali from The Sen Times

Varanasi: The Sen Times wishes all it’s viewers and subscribers a Happy Diwali.

People of Ayodhya bring 300,150 lamps on the banks of the River Sarayu as part of Diwali on Tuesday, the festival of lights celebrations, which breaks a Guinness World Record.

The word Diwali comes from the Sanskrit word “Deepawali”, which means a row of lights.

The Hindus celebrate this festival to commemorate the homecoming of Lord Rama after 14 year-long exile and his victory over the mythological demon Ravana.

For Jains, this festival carries the essence of spiritual upliftment because it marks the achievement of Nirvana or Moksha by Mahavira, the last Tirthankara.

The Sikhs observe Diwali as the release and return of Guru Hargobind Ji, the sixth guru, and other 52 princes in 1619 by decorating the Golden Temple with colourful lights.

Bengalis, Assamese and Oriyas worship Goddess Kali on this day, however, Kali puja of this year was celebrated yesterday.

Diwali marks the end of the Gujarati year. The celebrations are a way of offering thanks for the year gone by and all the good fortune that it brought. The day after Diwali is the beginning of the new fiscal year for Gujaratis.

It is with extreme pride that The Sen Times gracefully acknowledges the love and support of bureaucratic fraternity of India, other public servants, advertisers through Google AdSense, contributors and other newspapers copying The Sen Times, who have bestowed on The Sen Times ever since it launched online in 2012.

It isn’t easy entering a territory that has media giants on the playing field but The Sen Times has been able to increase its page viewers about to seven million per month now and revenue rising accordingly in this field.

The Sen Times‘ good wishes are with you always. Stay safe, healthy and celebrate the true essence of this wonderful festival of lights today.

Thank you once again for for believing and helping The Sen Times in its publishing the authentic bureaucratic news.
