As the winter sets in making the days colder and darker people around the world from the Sikh, Jain and Hindu communities come together to celebrate the festival of light, Diwali.
The lightning of candles is the symbol for Diwali for a profound reason. Just as a candle gives light and warmth to others whilst melting itself, those who celebrate Diwali keep the principle of selfless service to others dear to them. The Labour Friends of India is proud to celebrate this principle with the 1.5 million hard-working British Indians in the U.K. However, big or small everyone’s contribution is valued as this is the spirit of the _Ramayana_, the ancient story from which the festival of Diwali originates.
