Diwali is all about loving one another, says Pundit Ashok Maharaj.

The president for Akhil Shree Sanatan Dharam  Brahman Purohit Sabha said Diwali should be a time of love and togetherness.

On Friday, the Sabha along with the Labasa multicultural centre organised a pre-Diwali celebration in Labasa.

More than 400 people attended the event filled with entertainment and religious activities.

“It’s about time that we look after each other, forget all the hatred and think positively, everyone deserves to be happy,” Pundit Maharaj said.

Meanwhile during the celebration, the organisers surprised the attendees with the presence of the Labasa football team with their Inter-district Championship trophy.

“We invited the Labasa team to also celebrate with them their historic win.

“Everyone was surprised to see the team and happy.”

Pundit Maharaj also added that during the celebration they included some of the traditional dances which he believed has been long forgotten.

“We do not want our children and the future generation to forget these dances and we want it to live on.”

He wished all Fijians a “Happy Diwali”.
