The Spirit of Diwali

The Spirit of Diwali

It is said that Diwali was celebrated when Lord Rama returned to Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Lakshman after conquering Ravan. Evil had been overcome by goodness and purity. Truth had prevailed and hope had been restored. Till today, this wonderful festival is celebrated with joy and happiness and reminds us that whatever happens, goodness and truth always win. 

Over the years, there has been a growing trend of people overspending on fire crackers which ultimately contribute heavily to the rise in pollution. On this Diwali, let us choose to illuminate our hearts and minds with good thoughts, kindness, compassion and generosity. Instead of polluting our environment, let us instead pledge to help the needy, spread goodwill and become better human beings. 

Happy Diwali from!
