 Diwali: Festival of Lights
The Significance of Lights & Firecrackers
 All the simple rituals of Diwali have a significance and a story to tell. The illumination of homes with lights and the skies with firecrackers is an expression of obeisance to the heavens for the attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and prosperity. According to one belief, the sound of fire-crackers are an indication of the joy of the people living on earth, making the gods aware of their plentiful state. Still another possible reason has a more scientific basis: the fumes produced by the crackers kill a lot of insects and mosquitoes, found in plenty after the rains.
 From Darkness Unto Light...
 
In each legend, myth and story of Deepawali lies the significance of the victory of good over evil; and it is with each Deepawali and the lights that illuminate our homes and hearts, that this simple truth finds new reason and hope. From darkness unto light
 the light that empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds, that which brings us closer to divinity. During Diwali, lights illuminate every corner of India and the scent of incense sticks hangs in the air, mingled  with the sounds of fire-crackers, joy, togetherness and hope. Diwali is celebrated around the globe . Outside India, it is more than a Hindu festival, it's a
 
celebration of South-Asian identities. If you are away from the sights and sounds of Diwali, light a
diya
 , sit quietly, shut your eyes, withdraw the senses, concentrate on this supreme light and illuminate the soul.

Electricity costs for lighting in the typical home can reach 12% or more in terms of your annual energy costs. So if you would like to know 
, you can conserve just by focusing on lighting. Energy Star
 
qualified compact fluorescent lamps (CFL’s) are the right
 
 to save money on electricity bills and 
 
. To put this into perspective, that percentage is about the same that the average home uses for cooling and electronic appliances. I personally feel
 
that estimate is conservative; I seem to spend more and more time reminding people in the house to turn of the lights when they are not in the room, etc. That is the on-going challenge of awareness and guiding people to change behaviors.
So why are compact fluorescent lamps (CFL’s) so great?
 Just take a glance at our incandescent bulbs on the right, they have not really changed during the
 which has a long timeline of
 
many milestones, discoveries and inventions. Photo credit: Essentially they combine the
energy efficiency
 of fluorescent lighting into energy saving light bulbs that can fit into incandescent fixtures. Energy star qualifie
d CFL’s use approximately
 
75% less electricity
 that standard incandescent bulbs. These
low energy light bulbs
 have a lifespan that is up to
10 times longer
 than standard bulbs. Therefore when you install energy efficient light bulb in your home, the resulting energy savings (electricity) is compounded over a longer period of time.
