What is Diwali Festival and who observe Diwali
Diwali (the festival of lights) is a significant occasion for those who practice Hinduism, Jainism and Sikhism. It celebrates the triumphant victory of good over evil – and the glory of light over darkness, a beam of hope over despair.
The word Diwali or Deepavali (in its full form), means ‘a row of lamps’. It marks a new beginning, a renewal of commitment to family values, and represents all the good virtues we seek such as love, reflection, forgiveness and knowledge.
