Diwali Festival 2018

Enthusiastically celebrated by people of all nationalities, races and religions, Diwali, the festival of lights creates a world of joy and festivity. It celebrates the triumphant victory of good over evil - and the glory of light over darkness, a beam of hope over despair. The world Diwali or Deepavali (in its full form), means 'a row of lamps'.
