Wishing you a Happy Diwali

‘Diwali’, or ‘Deepavali’, celebrates the symbolic victory of goodness over evil and the triumph of knowledge over ignorance.  This year, many are not able to gather in large groups to celebrate this festive occasion due to the on-going measures to stem Covid-19 infections.  We can, however, still connect meaningfully with others by sending our good wishes and sincere thoughts of love and care.
