Diwali in London

Trafalgar Square comes alive with lanterns to celebrate the new year according to the Hindu calendar
On Sunday the 28th of October, the Hindu, Sikh and Jain communities living in London will meet in Trafalgar Square for the great Diwali festival: the festival of lights. Diwali represents the victory of good over evil and light over darkness. In fact, the tradition is the turning on of lights (candles or traditional lamps called diya). For Hindus, the festivities for Diwali last five days and take place in the Hindu month of Aswayuja, between October and November. Diwali is also celebrated by the Sikh population who remember the "Bandi Chor Diwas" as the day in 1619 when Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji was freed from Gwalior prison in India along with 52 other princes. The program of events in London includes performances, street food and craft stalls, theatre and dance lessons.
