On the wonderful day, we would like to wish our Hindu friends a Happy Deepavali.
Deepavali, or the Hindu Festival of light, is celebrated in India and many parts of the world. The beauty of this great occasion lies in its significance as it represents the triumph of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. As such, on the eve of Deepavali, many of the Hindu homes are turned into enclaves of warm golden light even as the Hindus offer prayers, exchange gifts and share sweetmeats with each other. With the scent of incense sticks hanging in the air, mingled with the sounds of joy, togetherness and hope makes the celebration almost magical.
I was privileged enough to experience some of the Deepavali celebrations during one of my visits to Singapore. I embraced the whole atmosphere and was in awe at how the tiny island celebrated the diversity of its people. The streets, traditionally associated with the Indian and folks known as Serangoon Road, was illuminated with a beautiful display of lights. That night, even my spirit and soul was illuminated ;)
Have a great day my Hindu Friends and continue to illuminate the light from within <3 Peace & love.
