Happy Diwali!!

Diwali, the Festival of Lights, is this Saturday, October 17. Here is a picture from a Diwali pooja last year in my husband's Delhi home:

Diwali is a national holiday in India and a significant festival in Hinduism, Jainism, and Sikhism. Although it is commonly referred to as the "Festival of Lights", its spiritual interpretation is the "awareness of the inner light." Happy Diwali to all!

Sodha Travel was born from my desire to share the beauty of India with the world. Since then, our services have extended to other destinations - but our passion remains the same. To me, traveling is a multifaceted relationship: a relationship with other cultures, a relationship with other people, and ultimately a relationship with our own self.
