India was ruled harshly by the British not too long ago. People struggled to survive with limited rights and high taxes. Slowly, but surely, some strong-willed members of the Indian community rose up to protest against the British. These Freedom Fighters fought hard and they should be honoured for helping India to achieve independence.
The 'Festival of Lights' is one of the most celebrated Hindu Festivals acknowledged all over the world. The removal of darkness symbolises the removal of ignorance and the introduction of light is a positive step towards knowledge and enlightenment. Enjoy this festive occasion with family and friends.
