Diwali is one of India’s most important festivals. It represents victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. This is why candles and diyas cover Indian homes during the Diwali celebrations.
People with Indian heritage all over the world were challenged to celebrate Diwali in an innovative manner, while on the cusp of another COVID-19 wave. Diwali was an unprecedented and bitter-sweet experience for me this year. Days leading up to the festival were challenging to plan. Still, I managed to make most of it with a little bit of research and availability of digital channels.
