Last evening’s wonderful celebration of light, brought to us by none other than the master of wonderment, Mother Nature herself, I guess, is a fitting welcome to the Hindu Festival of Lights, or Deepavali, as it is known in Singapore. This would be celebrated by Hindus around the world tomorrow as Deepavali or Diwali to commemorate the triumph of good over evil, a central theme of the Hindu epic the Ramayana. For me, Deepavali would somehow always be remembered for the colourful cubes of coconut candy that a Sikh neighbour in Toa Payoh would invariably prepare for Deepavali. Incidentally Sikhs also celebrate Diwali, with the day being associated with several significant events in Sikhism. With this, I would like to wish all my Hindu and Sikh friends and readers a very happy Deepavali or Diwali.
