On a moonless night, we light candles and small earthen pots with oil to get rid of the darkness.
In India, we celebrate Diwali as a Festival of Lights. More than the religious reasons, I like it for what it symbolizes. A day I try to get rid of the darkness and fear, inside me, with the proverbial inner light.
I also take this opportunity to pass on love and light to all my near and dears. May you always have the courage to face your fears, may you always find light in the darkest hour of the night.
When you get a chance, please light a candle. Who knows someone might be looking for light, in his or her hour of darkness.
