Shreeya is pictured wearing her new Indian clothes with the rangoli her mom and her made. She celebrated Diwali “festival of lights” on November 14th. “This day celebrates the return on Rama, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu, and his wife Sita, an avatar of Goddess Lakshmi, to Ayodhya,” senior Shreeya Mishra said. “ After his 14 years in exile, Rama returns after defeating the evil Ravana, which is why this day celebrates good over evil. Because of their return the residents of Ayodhya had a celebration and lit clay lamps.”
