Choti Diwali Traditions
- In South India that victory of the divine over the mundane is celebrated in a very peculiar way. People wake up before sunrise prepare a paste by mixing Kumkum in oil, symbolizing blood and after breaking a bitter fruit that represents the head of the demon King that was smashed by Krishna, apply that mixture on their foreheads. Then they have an oil bath using sandalwood paste.
- In Maharashtra, a traditional early morning bath with oil and “Uptan” (paste) of gram flour and fragrant powders is a `must’. All through the ritual of baths, deafening sounds of crackers and fireworks can be heard as children get into the Diwali mode.
- Afterward steamed vermicelli with milk and sugar or puffed rice with curd is served.
