“Deepavali ” : “Deepa” means lamp, “avali” means an array or a row.
Deepavali the festival of LIGHTS , is celebrated with an array of lamps . An Indian festival celebrating the triumph of LIGHT over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance. It is celebrated all over the world by the Hindus, Sikhs, Jains & some Buddhists too.
This year Deepavali is celebrated on October 27th, 2019 on a Sunday. Isn’t it time to gather the deepa‘s/lamps to LIGHT our way, this season ?
There is not enough darkness in this world to snuff out the LIGHT of one little “deepa”
