Delhiites celebrated Diwali with fervour and gaiety on Tuesday lighting up houses with 'diyas', making colourful 'rangolis', exchanging sweets and bursting crackers.


People rushed to their nearby markets to make last minute shopping for sweets and crackers even as many began the day with the morning prayers with some offering prayers at households and others visiting temples.

Dressed in their festive best, people visited their friends and relatives and exchanged gifts.

Many also took to Facebook to wish a 'Happy Diwali' to their friends    and some also used the social networking site to exhort their friends to follow safety norms while bursting crackers.

Diwali marks the joy of Ayodhya when Lord Ram returns to his kingdom after defeating Ravana.

Police and fire brigade made extensive arrangements to ensure an "incident-free" Diwali.

While police strengthened its presence across the city, especially in markets, fire fighters too kept fire tenders ready to respond at any distress call.
