The Ladysmith Gazette would like to wish you a very happy Diwali if you are celebrating today (November 7).
Deepavali or Diwali is the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals.
It is the festival of lights: deep means “light” and avali “a row” or “a row of lights”. Diwali is marked by four days of celebration, which literally illuminates the country with its brilliance and dazzles all with its joy.

The Diwali festival occurs in late October or early November. It falls on the 15th day of the Hindu month of Kartik, so it varies every year.
Each of the four days in the festival of Diwali is separated by a different tradition. What remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and a great sense of goodness.
We wish all our Hindu readers a blessed day!
