Let us on this auspicious occasion of Diwali resolve to spread peace, to unite people in love and celebration, to bring prosperity. This is the occasion to let go of past bickering and misunderstanding and once again come together in spirit of celebration. All the best to everyone of you. Happy Diwali to every one of you!
