Happy Diwali

Diwali, also known as Deepavali (the festival of lights), is celebrated every year during the October / November period.

The homes are decorated with candles, clay lamps, and fairy lights and Rangooli (intricate artwork designs handmade with colourful powder).

It is a fun filled occasion with lots of merriment and it is associated with the exchange of elaborate Indian sweets.

The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair.

This festival is celebrated by the people from the Indian diaspora.
