Happy Diwali

This weekend marks the auspicious Diwali occasion whereby Sikhs, Hindus, Jains and a number of Buddhists across the world will be celebrating this festival of light. The important message behind Diwali – the triumph of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance – is incredibly significant in these times of austerity. The people of London are coming together, from all different backgrounds, to celebrate this joyous occasion as one community.

Diwali is a time for gathering with friends, family and neighbours, enjoying delicious food, dancing and fireworks. It is a time for us to celebrate but also for us to reflect about those less fortunate.

I wish everyone a Happy Diwali and a joyous celebration.
