Diwali across the world and various culture carry different stories. Haven’t we had situations wherein we got into arguments with our fellow mates on the dates of Diwali, or history behind Diwali?
For example, Diwali is associated with Ramayana by few, with Goddess Durga by few. Jains celebrate Diwali in observance of Mahavira Nirvana Diwas. Although it carries different stories across the world, Diwali is known for one standard attribute- LIGHT.
“At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.”
This Diwali, let us light everyone’s lives with these gifts -
