SOUTH AFRICAN PRESIDENT SENDS DIWALI GREETINGS
South African President Jacob Zuma has extended good wishes to the country's Hindu, Tamil, Gujerati and other communities who celebrate Diwali or Deepavali, the Indian Festival of Light.
"May the divine light shower you with peace, prosperity, happiness, success and fulfilment as you celebrate this annual occasion," said President Zuma over the weekend.
Diwali honours the triumph of light over darkness, of good over evil, of knowledge and wisdom over ignorance and thoughtlessness.
On this holy day, celebrated this year on Oct 29, devotees around the country and across the world light lamps which symbolise the victory of light over darkness.
The president urged devotees to recommit to making South Africa a better place for all.
