Diwali 2012

The festival to celebrate victory of the Good over the Evil and Light over Darkness has a major religious significance for people not only for Hindus, but also for Hindus living abroad. The only way to enjoy Diwali to the fullest extent is to celebrate it with your family and friends. It is the time to forget all your troubles and problems for the time being and get ready to celebrate the festival with Diwali pooja, sweets, rangoli and lots of fun.
