Diwali, or the Festival of Lights, is the celebration of light over darkness, and for some, is one of the most widely observed times of year to come together, exchange gifts, feast, and share stories. Of course, sharing stories is what we do best here on Wattpad.

To celebrate Diwali, we've put together a reading list highlighting South Asian writers we know you'll love. Overwhelmed with choice? We're spotlighting some of these incredible stories here to get you started.

Saving Satyavan by romance_lover16

She had failed. Dharmaraj had won, taking Satyavan, her dear husband, with him. But Savitri's not about to lose the man she loves without a fight. Aided by Suman, a sweet but blissfully ignorant disciple of Sage Agastya, Savitri makes the perilous journey to Naraka to retrieve Satyavan's soul. But the path to the land of the dead is not an easy one. Filled with fiery gods, ravenous rakshasas, and cunning carnivores, Savitri is risking her life to save Satyavan. Will she be able to rescue him before he's gone forever? Or will she not only lose him, but herself, in the process?

Here, she meets Radha- a beautiful prostitute with a daughter. The very next day, Radha is found dead in the temple premises. And what the villagers label as the next-in-line in a chain of paranormal murders is a magnetic mystery in the life of Maya which tempts her to get to the root of this cruelty. Will she succeed in finding out the culprit or succumb to death like the five victims?
