Hundreds of Indians turned the NagaWorld Grand Ballroom into a dancefloor on Saturday, as they reveled in the spirit of Deepavali.
Close to 100 Malaysians gathered at the Embassy in Phnom Penh yesterday to celebrate the Festival of Lights, known fondly as Deepavali.
In a nutshell, Deepavali Festival is a celebration of the victory of light over darkness, of good over evil. The word in Sanskrit means “rows of lighted lamps”. And people celebrate Diwali by literally celebrating light!
The Embassy of Malaysia held its first Deepavali, or Diwali, celebration at Rumah Malaysia on the weekend.
