Di­wali sym­bol­ises the vic­tory of knowl­edge over ig­no­rance, light over dark­ness and good over evil.

Now in its sixth year, the FIC Di­wali event con­tin­ues to be a strong bind­ing force, blend­ing In­dian cul­ture of ‘ unity in diver- sity’ within the lo­cal com­mu­nity.

Cul­tural per­for­mances by chil­dren and adults yet again proved a high­light as they rocked the dance floor to the lat­est Bol­ly­wood num­bers

More than 200 guests en­joyed mouth­wa­ter­ing In­dian del­i­ca­cies and a daz­zling fire­works dis­play at the event, which was spon­sored by KDS, Lon­don and Virgo Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices Ltd.

A FIC spokesman said: “Based on its core val­ues of bet­ter­ment of com­mu­ni­ties, lo­cal cul­ture amal­ga­ma­tion, to­geth­er­ness and har­mony, FIC con­tin­ues with its ef­forts to help the lo­cal com­mu­nity and lo­cal busi­nesses.

“Mov­ing into next year, FIC will build on the suc­cess of the last six years to spread its core val­ues and to con­trib­ute for the so­cial cause lo­cally and around the globe.”
