Perhaps the most well know Hindu festival is fast approaching. Diwali a celebration of the importance of good over evil – the ‘festival of lights’ will be celebrated this year from the 26th of this month. These celebrations really became obvious to Zoe and I when we first came to London nearly 9 years ago – the skies would light in little pockets for the days of the festival with fireworks – a beautiful way to add a bit of sparkle to those dark and cold winter nights.
Traditionally Diwali calls for the lighting of small clay lamps that signifies the triumph of good over evil and movement from darkness into light. For all those celebrating its a chance to get together with loved ones and take part in activities together in their homes.
We wish all those celebrating a very happy दीपावली
