Happy Diwali to all the Indians across the world! This year, it falls on Tuesday 13th November 2012.
I do miss this festive season in Malaysia, which is widely celebrated by all Malaysians regardless of race and background, which is a significant Malaysian public holiday. It is known in Malaysia as “Deepavali”. Happy Deepavali to all Malaysian Indians.
In Australia with the largest Indian community residing in Melbourne, it is widely celebrated by the community at the Federation Square (Fed Square) last Saturday with live and colourful performances, food stalls and other cultural stands. There was a bit of Bollywood and hip hop with an Indian twist. It was a perfect day for the festival. Plenty of sunshine.
