Diwali and Hindu New Year

On the 10th of October we celebrated Diwali and Hindu New Year at Parliament House with the Hon. Paul Papalia and BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Sanstha. Diwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, is a significant festival in Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism and symbolises the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. The colours, sights and sounds of India will come together this month with almost 70,000 Western Australian Indians expected to be involved in the celebrations.
