Wishing our Indian and Nepalese students, partners and their families a Happy Diwali! ?

Diwali is celebrated over five days celebrating regional traditions. It is one of the most popular festivals in India and is also celebrated as Tihar in Nepal. Diwali symbolizes the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”. People celebrate the festival by lighting fireworks and partaking in family feasts, where sweets and gifts are shared. It is also known as the festival of lights.
