The Kesariya Hindu Vahini and Hindu Seva Sangh extends its greetings and good wishes to islanders celebrating Diwali festival.

Many cities have banned use of firecrackers owing to the increasing levels of air pollution and the ill effects of COVID 19 to the already affected people. Considering the above facts it may not be all wrong to celebrate the festival in a low key.

Shri M.Vinod, President, Andaman Association of Tour Operators along with all its members has wished a very Happy Diwali to all islanders and tourists. May The Festival of Lights Bring Happiness and Sparkle of Joy, said Vinod.

The festival of Diwali teaches us to fight against evil and follow the path of goodness. May this divine occasion illuminate our life with peace, happiness, and affluence! Wish u all a very Happy Deepawali
