Diwali is true when we all become one, immaterial of our religious background and ethnicity.

These were the words of the Minister for Education, Mahendra Reddy, while speaking at the Nasinu Sangam Primary School’s Diwali celebration yesterday.

“Diwali brings hope to all, young and old, that there is a light head and let us march towards this light with a pure heart,” Dr Reddy said.

“The different colours reflect our diversity and we are blessed in Fiji to have such diversity. Let us make the best of this diversity.”

Teachers and students were in Diwali spirit as they sang and danced.
School headteacher Kamal Lal said Diwali was an occasion when we came together to share the joy of the celebration.

“It has a significant message for all and that we should help, uplift and care for all by removing the darkness from inside us and welcoming light into our lives.

“Lord Rama’s story signified the most important aspect and that is his faith kept him alive in the forest and helped him to defeat evil,” Mr Lal said.
More than 400 Fijian students and parents took part in the celebration.
