My Diwali message to Wales Online

October 23, 2014 12:35 PM

ProfileDear Editor,

I would like to send my best wishes and warmest greetings to all those in Cardiff Central and across Wales who are celebrating Diwali.

Diwali, also known as the Festival of Light, is a fantastic family festival where Hindus, Jains and Sikhs come together to reflect on the events of the past in order to prepare and change for the future. The symbolic lighting of lamps, representing life, hope and new beginnings sends a powerful message of peace and unity to us all.

It is also gives me an opportunity to reflect on the huge contribution made by the Indian community in Wales to our country's prosperity and culture. In particular, we have a vibrant community of Indian students at our universities in Cardiff and many go on to live and work in Wales when they finish their studies.

Once again, my best wishes for a joyous and prosperous Diwali.

Yours sincerely,

Jenny Willott MP

Liberal Democrat

Cardiff Central

What would you like to do next?
