Description
The United Nations General Assembly recognized the significance of Diwali in its resolution 69/250 in 2014. Diwali is the Hindu festival of lights celebrated every year. Diwali is a shortened version of the Sanskrit word Deepavali which translates as a “necklace of lights.” It also represents the victory of “Good” over “Evil,” and “Light” over “Darkness.” It is an official holiday in many countries across the world.
