Diwali Greetings – The Festival of Lights Celebration in India

November 5, 2010

Happy Diwali! to all Hindus as well as others in India and around the world.

Diwali is the festival of lights and an occasion to celebrate the triumphant of good over evil.

In contemporary life, the festival marks the fresh beginning with an opportunity to strengthen the positive virtues and discard the negative vices for a better future.

The prayer for joy, good health and success in life is the festival essence.

It is celebrated by exchanging gifts and delicious Indian sweets with colorful fireworks decorating the sky. The celebration promotes solidarity and human spirit to share happiness with all.

I join all those celebrating this wonderful festival and pray for universal peace, progress and prosperity.

I hope the brilliant lights illumine the world and expel the pervasive darkness as we approach the end of Kaliyuga (Immoral Iron Age) for a new promising era (Satya Yuga – The Golden Age) with compassion, love, unity and peace.

Once again, “Sab Ko Diwali Mubarak,” “Deepavali Nal Valthukal.”

Happy and Joyous Diwali / Deepavali to all!

Thank you.
