‘Tuhanu Diwali diyan boht both vadhaiyan’
Diwali is celebrated by millions of people in India, Canada and around the world. Hundreds of millions of Hindus celebrate “the Festival of Lights.” People of other faiths, including Sikhism, also celebrate.
For Sikhs the festival has added significance as it generally coincides with a Sikh celebration known as Bandi Chhor Divas.
Many people will celebrate a five day festival from November 2 to 7 in 2021, with the main celebration of Diwali on November 4. However, it may be celebrated at different times, and in different ways, by various groups in India and in the Indian diaspora.
Diwali may also be rendered as Deepavali or Divali.
