Karthikai or Karthikai Deepam is a Hindu Festival celebrated every year during Mid-November to Mid-December when the moon is in conjunction with the constellation "Karthigai" (Pleiades) and Purnima.

It is celebrated by lighting rows of lamps (Agal Vilakkus) in the household. It is a symbolic representation of light (good) overcoming/dispelling darkness (bad).

Sorry for the soft focus, I Was working with a 50mm f1.8 and was using LiveView to manually focus this shot while lying prone on the ground. I personally feel that a sharper focus on the lamp would render this image more stronger.
