Indian Inspired Diwali Cards
We’ve tried to encapsulate the tradition, colour and history of Diwali in the design of my Diwali Cards. Our cards are a fusion of old traditions and new techniques and styles envisaged through my culture and background as a fellow Indian myself. We sometimes can forget what the true meaning of Diwali is, we live in modern world full of technology…so here’s a short history of why we celebrate and how different cultures celebrate this festival.
Diwali or Deepavali festival marks the victory of good over evil. The Sanskrit word “Deepavali” means “an array of lights” and signifies the victory of brightness over darkness. As the knowledge of Sanskrit diminished, the name was popularly modified to Diwali, especially in northern India. On Diwali, the goddess Laxmi, a symbol of prosperity, is worshipped.
