DIWALI is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals.

The illumination of homes with lights (clay lamps) is an expression of obeisance to the heavens for the attainment of health, wealth, knowledge, peace and prosperity.

This year Diwali falls on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 October.

The Fever wishes all its Hindu readers and clients a happy Diwali.
