Happy Diwali 2022
Diwali, Deepavali or Divali, also known as the Festival of Lights, takes place around the Autumn new moon (northern hemisphere), which marks the passing of the darkest day of the year.
It originated as the festival symbolising victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. In the current world what the festival of lights really stands for is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to friendship, religious tolerance, spreading the word of peace and harmony and above all, celebration of “simple joys of life”.
