Festivals in India are marked by bright lights. Festivals like Dusshera and Diwali spiritually signify the victory of good over evil by manifesting as light over darkness.

These candles are known as Diyas and can be used to light up your houses during festivals, can adorn your puja or may be gifted to loved ones for special occasions.
