Diwali As Harvest Festival in Kerala - submitted by Joby George
Story of Diwali
This article was inspired partially by e-mail stories friends have sent me over the years and from other internet research I have done. It's not only Diwali that fascinates me like this, but the fact that the same holidays are celebrated in different parts of India, but expressed so differently from state to state and region to region.
Day 1: Dhanteras
Day 2: Nakra Chaturdashi
Day 3: Lakshmi Puja
Day 4: Padwa or Varshapratipada
Day 5: Bhayya Dhuj

Onam and Diwali: A Mysterious Connection
When a friend sent me a story about Onam legends and myths, something in that story reminded me of aspects of the Story of Diwali article above. It is quite interesting that the same story some in India use to celebrate Diwali is used in a very similiar way but to explain Onam. It so intrigued me, I wrote this article on it.
