    CNN celebrates ... Diwali



    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     The amazingly bright flowers in this picture capture the electrifying energy that Diwali brings, says iReporter giveagalapal

    "The cultural emphasis on the idea of "good trumping evil" through the use of bright colors, firecrackers, lights, and lamps, I believe, add a powerful and magical element to the day," he says.

    "This idea is very uplifting, especially in a country where most days are characterized by pervasiveness of poverty and other "evils" in the world. This Diwali is also special because it is my first time celebrating the holiday!"

    The first image here was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for February 9, 2015.
