Offering deepam (or light) is an integral part of all pujas, major or minor. This signifies the light residing within us, the true Self that we offer to the divine in a spirit of pure devotion and surrender. Element-wise, deepam refers to the fire residing inside the Atman. Simply put, light is believed to be the source of wisdom, as it dispels darkness. The Self has also been described, in spirituality, as effulgent light. Symbolically, the oil used represents the vasanas, the wick represents the ego and the fire, the flame of knowledge that burns out the ego. The lighting of the lamp is a very auspicious occasion at any puja, festival or occasion for this very reason. It is believed that god inhabits that house where the woman of the house lights the lamp every morning and evening. The Diwali, the Festival of Lights is celebrated by first lighting little diyas (earthen lamps) and then bursting colourful crackers. These diyas are made only of natural materials, like clay.

Dei started in 2016 as an online shopping marketplace for the Indian community in Singapore. We noticed 2 issues when we went shopping at Little India.
First, our parents and the old being squashed by massive crowds, scorched by the blazing heat, carrying huge bags and facing long queues to get back home. Second, the younger generation seems to be clueless when buying Indian products. Let's face it; nobody knows their stuff like our Mums, right? So we addressed these two most important points. We wanted to make Little India Online. That's how Dei was born.
Now, we are Singapore's Largest Indian Online Store, carrying over 10,000 products ranging from groceries, spices, meat, fashion, beauty care, food and also your daily essentials. Now, you can shop for all your Indian products under one roof, and with just a few clicks, we will deliver Little India to your home. Little India is Online now!
