Diwali Celebrations By Nri’s

Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights, and it usually falls on a date between mid-octobers to mid-November. It is one of the most popular festivals celebrated in India, as well as by Indians overseas. It symbolizes the spiritual victory of good over evil. People give each other gifts and sweets, burst firecrackers together, and just have a good time with each other. But over the past few years, this has changed.

In recent times, Diwali has become like any other festival, it is not celebrated as much, and the only things offered among people are mere wishes of ‘Happy Diwali’ instead of actual celebrations. For children growing up outside of India, Diwali is simply a day on which there won’t be school, they are able to have meals with their cousins and friends and occasionally burst crackers. They don’t know the true significance of the day and, especially during this time, can’t really celebrate with their relatives and friends.

We may be far from home, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate Diwali in all its glory. No matter where we are, we are Indians, and Diwali is a festival that we must enjoy to the fullest, as it brings us together to share love, joy and happiness with each other.
