Diwali

Diwali

Diwali, also known as the Festival of Lights is the highlight of the Hindu religious calendar, and symbolizes the return of the most prominent Indian deity, Lord Ram from exile. It is written in Indian history how thousands of worshippers lit lamps celebrating his return hence the reference to Diwali as the Festival of Lights.

Among the may things the festival represents, are the triumph of good over evil, goodwill and thanksgiving, love and prosperity, and peace and harmony all of which reflects the celebration of light overcoming darkness. The annual festivities prove to be a truly multicultural event, and serves as an opportunity to share various aspects of the Hindu culture with all South Africans and visitors.

Festivities usually include various floats, carnivals, live singing and dance performances, craft markets and fireworks displays usually held at a number of Durban's beaches in the evening. The festival which is highly traditional, has in recent years seen Durban's Mitchell Park transformed into a bright wonderland of lights, featuring various international and local artists performing cultural music, drama and songs. Also included are a number of plays depicting the origin of Diwali.
