Diwali ~ A Festival of Lights

Compiled by The Bedford Citizen

Diwali, a Festival of Lights, will be celebrated in countries throughout the northern hemisphere and in many Bedford homes on Wednesday, November 7.

In 2017, Prakhar Gupta created a film about Diwali as it is celebrated by his family in Bedford. With thanks to Prakhar and Bedford TV, The Bedford Citizen is pleased to share this video with our readers.

According to Google.com, “Diwali is a Hindu festival of lights, which is celebrated every autumn in the northern hemisphere. One of the most popular festivals of Hinduism, Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.”
