Diwali message from the Mayor of Kingston
Deepavali or Diwali is the festival of lights, which symbolises victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.
"I want to extend my warmest wishes to all the communities who celebrate this auspicious day in the borough and across the world. This is an opportunity for us to celebrate diversity by coming together, learn from each other and enjoy the lights, joyous music and fireworks. I hope that the festival of lights will bring prosperity and happiness to all sections of the society and promote goodwill among all communities."
