Below are a selection of photographs taken at The Punjabi Community Centre, Swindon, Wiltshire, U.K. to celebrate Diwali (The Festival of Lights) hosted by The Swindon Indian Association and organised by Rahul Tarar. A truly wonderful and colourful celebration with an atmosphere of kindness and multiracial love and respect for humanity.
Diwali is a five-day celebration. Diwali is celebrated by Hindus in Britain and all over the world. Diwali is perhaps the most well-known of the Indian festivals. It is a five day celebration which occurs on the fifteenth day of the Hindu month of Kartika (during October/November in the Gregorian calendar).
