Happy Diwali to our Hindu friends

‘Diwali’ (or more commonly called ‘Deepavali’ in Malaysia) celebrates the symbolic victory of goodness over evil; and the triumph of knowledge over ignorance.  On this festive occasion, Nalanda wishes our Hindu friends a “Joyful Diwali” filled with wholesome love, light, and peace.  Have a meaningful celebration with family and friends, and travel safely.
