Diwali or Deepavali is the Hindu festival of lights celebrated every year in autumn in the northern hemisphere (spring in southern hemisphere).
One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, it spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

A kandeel/lantern is a lantern with a wooden framework and covered in coloured matte or glossy papers. These lanterns are generally hung in front of homes during the Hindu festival of lights.

Kandeels/Lanterns are hung for around a month from the first day of Diwali. Kandeels/Lanterns are traditionally built in a crystal shape with tails at the bottom; shapes include stars, globes and airplanes. Opaque papers cut into a complex design give more beauty to a Kandeels/Lanterns by blocking some of the light behind it.

This video covers the lantern market which pops up every year before Diwali. This market is located at Citylight, Mahim-Mumbai, India. 
The shops are run by locals residing in the area and lanterns are made by hands.
