Jai Sia Ram, Namaskar, Jai Jinendra, SSA & Greetings
Diwali at Trafalgar Square has been organised by the Mayor of London in partnership with Diwali in London Planning Committee. Varsha ji Mistry and I were honoured and delighted to be chairing the magnificent DiL Planning Committee this year. 14 organisations in the DiL Committee worked very hard & closely together, to ensure that Diwali at Trafalgar Square this year (11 October 2015) was the best so far. Thank you to all our members and well-wishers.
As you may know, Varsha and I represent the Metropolitan Police Hindu Association which is an integral part of the Metropolitan Police Service – the biggest and a very diverse employer in London.
Well over one billion people around the world celebrate the festival of lights, a grand home coming and coronation of Lord Vishnu Avtar Shri Ram who ruled magnificently to earn the title of ‘King Supreme of Principles’. In the United Kingdom itself, around one million people from all faiths will be celebrating Diwali this year (on 11 November 2015).
On behalf of the Hindu Council UK, we would like to wish you, your family and friends “A very Happy Diwali, A Prosperous New Year and May this Diwali bring you the joy and love you have ever wished for”. “May the light that we celebrate at Diwali show us the way and lead us together on the path of harmony, peace and unity; and, of course, protection against any evil-forces”.
We are very proud to be working together with the right-minded people; in the service of Hindus and all our communities in the United Kingdom.
