Happy Diwali

This weekend, Sikhs, Hindus, Jains and many Buddhists celebrate Diwali, the festival of light. The important message behind Diwali – the triumph of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance – is incredibly significant in these times of austerity. As with all festivals, I see Diwali as a time when Londoners from many backgrounds come together to celebrate this joyous occasion as one community.


I wish everyone a Happy Diwali and a joyous celebration.
