Navin's News: Diwali

Happy Diwali

I am delighted to send my best wishes to all my constituents in Brent and Harrow who are celebrating Diwali.

The Festival of Lights is the celebration of good over evil. It celebrates the homecoming of Lord Rama and in the symbolic lighting of the lamps, reminds us that we must all join together to build a stronger society that is founded on the values of peace, community and prosperity for all.

 I wish you a joyous and peaceful day and the very best wishes for the year ahead.

Happy Diwali!

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.
