PHOTO MOMENT: Vijay’s pick of 2013’s best Diwali GIFs

Vijay Shah

Here is a selection of Diwali GIFs from various websites that I decided to include in this blogpost to get you in the festive mood.

I have especially selected these animated images, or GIFs, for their attractiveness, relevancy or uniqueness. I hope you like them!! 🙂

I have tried to include different styles of design and culture, as Diwali is a festival marked by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains, as well as many people outside in other faiths and none. Many of the images shown here are e-cards and ‘scraps’ for social networks like Facebook and Orkut.

A common theme with most of these animated images is lights. Expect lots of fireworks, diyas, candles, sparkles and the like – all highly symbolic of the nature of Diwali as the festival of lights….and of merriment and mirth.

The Half-Eaten Mind would like to wish all of our readers, friends and subscribers a very happy Diwali and New Year.

  1. EDITOR’S NOTE: On the 2nd November 2013, during a summary check of older articles, it was found that two of the Diwali 2013 GE/2070 VS festival GIFs had disappeared due to removal by their parent websites. They have been reinstated using the HEM WordPress server.
    All images have also been resized (enlarged) and centred for better effect.
    Amended 2/11/13 VS.


    1. Hi Jason,

      I source these images via Google Image search. I am planning to do a New Year 2014 GIF article within the next couple of days or so.
      Feel free to check back again before the January 1st. Many thanks for your appreciation 🙂



  2. Diwali is a very beautiful and very meaningful festival of lights, but fireworks are unnecessary – they cause terror and many injuries to birds and animals. Indian animal protection groups are opposed to them.
