Diwali in London!

Dance performers and thousands of revellers celebrated the Diwali Festival of Lights in Trafalgar Square on Sunday. They were joined by London mayor Sadiq Khan, who lit a ceremonial candle during the opening of the festival that heralds new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness. The five-day celebration is observed by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains in India and many other countries around the world. Sadiq Khan, a prominent London Labour politician, described the atmosphere in the Square as 'fantastic” and said it was “great to see Londoners from all walks of life celebrating together.”
