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).

I am pleased with this shot, however, I should have used a smaller aperture (ideally, 2.8) to get the rider in focus as well.
