At midnight, firecrackers exploded all around the neighbourhood in celebration of Deepavalli. Non-Malays were the butt of racist polemics in the past weeks, but it didn’t mar the Hindus from enjoying the Festival of Lights! Because they are maintaining the peace and celebrating, the rest of us can, too, in true Malaysian spirit.
So, have an enjoyable Deepavalli! Let’s stay strong and let the Light shine through this festival and touch others. In the end, Light always triumphs! We can look forward to that!
Wishing all of you a very happy Deepavalli!
