Happy Deepavali

Deepavali is a colorful festival that is celebrated by all Hindus worldwide, which is also known as the festival of lights. This festival usually falls around late October and November. One important practice that the Hindus follow during the festival is to light oil lamps in their homes on Deepavali morning. By lighting the oil lamps, the Hindus are thanking the gods for the happiness, knowledge, peace and wealth that they have received. The Hindus consider Deepavali as one of the most important festivals to celebrate. May this Deepavali be a wonderful new beginning to a year filled with happiness and prosperity for you! Happy Deepavali To All Malaysian Indians and MIUP members.
