This is my wish for all my Hindu, Jain & Sikh friends around the globe! May the light shine bright for you this year and all the years to come!
Oh and for those who haven’t a clue and want to know what this occasion is about…well here is a wee bit of history for you….
Deepavali also known as Diwali, literally means “row or garland of lights”. Locally, it has been called “The Festival of Lights”. It is symbolic of victory of good over evil, celebrated by most Hindus the world over. It highlights the victory of Lord Krishna, one of the deities of the Hindu pantheon, over the Demon King, Narakasura. It usually falls around late October or early November on the new moon day.
