One of our cultural communities in Hong Kong is the Indian community, they play an important role in the Hong Kong community. Do you know what important festival they celebrate? Currently they are celebrating Diwali (Festival of Lights).
Diwali is the festival of lights in India, it’s the celebration of the return of Lord Ram from his 14 years exile. His people lit oil lamps to guide his way back to the country. It celebrates the triumph over the dark and evil, this also marks the New Year for most Indians. This festival is celebrated by wearing traditional clothes, gathering with family & friends, eating sweets, bursting crackers, and making rangolis.
