Divali is here, the gracious festival where we celebrate the victory of light over darkness, goodness over evil, and knowledge over ignorance. We join with the Mauritian families as they gather to celebrate the festival of snacks and sweets where everyone enjoying a royal feast, old and young meet with delight in love and affection around the illuminating lights around.
On this occasion, brotherly ties are strengthened and people join forces to face the new normal caused by the pandemic of Covid-19 with great hope for the future.
May the diyas shine brightly to illuminate hearts and may the message of Divali foster peace and social cohesion in our plural Mauritius.
The Council of Religions salutes fellow citizens celebrating Divali and wishes them a joyous festival.
Peace and Happiness to all!
