For 27-year-old Amrita Singh, of Vuda, Lautoka, the joy of celebrating Diwali with her family is something she looks forward to each year.

“I treasure time spent with them because Diwali is basically about being thankful for what you have and to appreciate your loved ones,” Ms Singh said.

“My family and I celebrate Diwali every year by making varieties of sweets and snacks, decorating the house, dressing up in traditional outfits and giving thanks to god for everything.

“The atmosphere and the celebration vibes, Diwali songs, the fireworks and in general the festivity mood is definitely the best experience.

“This Diwali I encourage all to enjoy this occasion responsibly and also have empathy towards the less fortunate.”

Diwali is this coming Wednesday.

It is one of the most significant festivals in the Hindu Faith, the Festival of Light.

It is celebrated by Hindus in Fiji, India and other parts of the world annually.

It marks the victory of light over darkness and good over evil.

During Diwali, homes are decorated with colourful lights as families share gifts and food with relative, friends and neighbours.
