Diwali is a time to empower your spiritual life, to remove the negative vibes from both inside and outside the minds and move on towards the better enlightened version of oneself.

Transam Fiji Limited accountant Dhiraj Prasad made the statement during the company’s Diwali celebrations yesterday.

“It is also a time of a get together for the entire family as the festival brings positivity and happiness all around,” Mr Prasad said.

“Not just that, Diwali is also an auspicious time for shopping.  We buy new clothes or gifts for our friends, relatives, colleagues and neighbours,” he said.

“Exchanging gifts is an important part of the celebration; it includes dry fruits, sweets and seasonal specialties. Firecrackers are also an inevitable part of the celebration. ”

Work stopped for an hour as more than 20 staff celebrated Diwali yesterday at their Rodwell Road office in Suva.

“Diwali is celebrated by all the communities together and was marked as the victory of light over darkness, good over evil.

“The festival of lights is celebrated across the globe.” Mr Prasad said.

“From childhood, we have heard stories related to this festival. Each story carries different versions of the stories for the day.”
