Choti Diwali – Narak Chaturdashi
5 Days of Diwali: Day 02
On the second day of Diwali, the focus is on worshipping Kali, the goddess of Strength. Special emphasis is also placed on abolishing evil and, particularly, laziness.
Diyas and candles are lit in the evening and crackers burst (shooting fireworks) in order to mark the celebration of Choti Diwali.
