Alexa knows about Diwali

If you have kids at home, you can use Amazon Alexa to let your kids know the story behind celebrating Diwali. You can ask Alexa to recite the Ramayan Katha. All you need to do is say, “Alexa, play Ramayan” or you can say, “Alexa, why is Diwali celebrated?”.

Festive season in India is usually accompanied by pollution. This is particularly a problem in the northern parts of the country. So, one of the ways you can celebrate Diwali with Alexa is by ditching firecrackers and asking Alexa to burst them instead. All you need to say is, “Alexa, burst fire crackers” or “Alexa, start Diwali Cracker Game”.

Diwali Pooja with Alexa

Diwali pooja is one of the most important aspects of celebrating Diwali apart from decorating the house and bursting fire-crackers. Instead of doing it all yourself, you can ask Amazon Alexa to start the Diwali pooja. All you need to do is say, “Alexa, when is Lakshmi puja Muhurat” or “Alexa Start Diwali Pooja.”

Make Diwali food with Alexa

Last but not the least, food. In India, festivals are synonymous with gorging on various delicacies. Diwali is no exception to this rule. With Alexa, you can also experiment with various dishes at home. All you need to do is say, “Alexa, give me Diwali recipes” and enjoy making treats yourself at home.
