Diwali is the Indian Festival of light, which fell on Saturday. For Hindu’s Diwali is one of the most significant festivals in the calendar, it is actually about celebrating inner light and the belief that good will triumph over evil. Sounds like a beautiful thing to celebrate.
My Dad is married to Reshma, they live in South Africa. Recently close friends of Reshma’s family moved to Melbourne. We welcomed the family whose children are just a little older than ours. Sid and Netra included us in their Diwali celebrations, sharing “Sweet Meats” with us on Saturday.
Sharing different cultural traditions is valuable, exciting, broadening and….in this instance also very yummy!
