The Festival of Lights


Diwali is an important festival in the Hindu calendar. It marks the return of Lord Rama from exile after vanquishing the demon Ravan of Lanka and spending fourteen years in exile. Symbolically, the festival marks the defeat of evil at the hand of good, the triumph of justice and liberty. The diya, which symbolises light in the midst of darkness, hope in the midst of sorrow, is lit all over India to mark this great festival.

OTFS wishes all its readers a safe and happy Diwali.
