Deepavali Fair-The Indian Festival of Ligths,2007

 
The Indian Festival of Lights, is the most widely celebrated festival  of the people from the Indian sub-continent and across the whole world.  Deepavali means rows of lights, it is the festival symbolising victory  of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance.  Though there are many mythological explanations to this wonderful  festival, however, in the current world what the festival of lights  really stands for is a reaffirmation of hope, a renewed commitment to  friendship, religious tolerance, spreading the word of peace and  harmony and above all, celebration of “simple joys of life”.
 
The Hindu Council of Australia, a national body representing all Australian Hindus (over 100,000), has been celebrating this festival of lights for the past seven years on a large scale. Last year more than 20,000 people attended the whole day of festivities at the Sydney Olympic Park.
