How Diwali is celebrated Abroad.


Indian culture is infectious. The love and light that it spreads is beyond wonders. Indians are spread across the world, so they carry mini- India with them all along. As it is said, you may not live in India anymore, but India will always live in you wherever you continue to go. It is the festivals and the fun and the coming together that adds frolic to the occasion. Diwali is one such festival that gets people together.

The fear that your kids may not understand your culture is washed away for that period. You feel a ting of satisfied happiness.
