Di­wali for all

Mid Day - - Daily Dossier -

Per­haps the most touch­ing thing about In­dian fes­ti­vals is how it brings all com­mu­ni­ties to­gether. Be it Christ­mas, Durga Puja, or Gan­pati, Mum­bai read­ies like a queen for all. And this Di­wali, our faith in the abil­ity of a fes­ti­val, steeped more in cul­ture than re­li­gion, stood re­in­stated as we saw a hoard­ing out­side St Micheal’s Church in Mahim with a fes­tive mes­sage. “Let your light shine silently. Happy Di­wali,” it read.
