It is observed on the tenth day of the Hindu calendar during the month of Ashwin or Karthik. It lasts for ten days. The day marks the triumph of Lord Rama over King Ravana. It is considered as an auspicious time in Maharashtra and hence people buy new things during this period. The deities installed on the first day of Navratri will be immersed in water during the tenth day.

Diwali: It is a Hindu festival. It is also called a festival of lights. The festival falls during the Hindu calendar month of Kartika. It usually falls in the mid-October to mid-November period. The festival is celebrated on a new moon day. It is a five-day festival which begins on the day when Goddess Lakshmi was born and hence during Diwali, lamps are kept outside the house to welcome goddess Lakshmi and to seek her blessings.

The first day of the festival is celebrated as Dhanteras, which marks the beginning of the financial year. People worship cows before performing the Lakshmi Puja. All the houses are cleaned up, painted, decorated with lights during the evening time. During the third day, people pray both Goddess Lakshmi and Lord Ganesha to invoke prosperity and health amongst the family members.
