Our festivals are linked closely to the nature. The food, weather, everything about a festival is so symbiotic. Festivals are fixed not just on the mood of the moon but also mood of the people. From farmers harvest to well being, everything was linked to festivities by our ancestors. All forms of darkness are to be fought with a “deep” of Diwali, we are eliminating all the darkness from inside us and the world around. World leaders are celebrating Diwali and sharing their memories & pictures on different social media platforms. Diwali is a festival which is bringing people together.“
