Diwali: Far from home

Diwali marks the commencement of the Hindu New Year, a day to be grateful and celebrate with close family and friends. A day to start afresh, with traditions encouraging indulgence in a selection of delectable platters and gifts and the offering of prayers to Lakshmi Maa — the goddess of wealth and prosperity.
