DIWALI
By Paul Sood
Paul is out on the streets of Leicester at Diwali, remembering how he first came to the UK as a student, many years ago. At first he was terribly lonely and homesick, and it was the Diwali celebrations which made him feel at home during those years.

Your thoughts about this video

    

Radha
...sitting here in Germany with nasty weather, my sons around me and alone...a smile on my face and tears in my eyes, an ache in my heart and the call of my soul because of longing back to my MOM India...I DO LOVE YOU SOO MUCH...God bless you all!...with devotion and humility to the old, great and wonderful spiritual culture of INDIA

Kamaljit Kaur
I thought the video was very educational. I am a Hindu myself and think that everyone could learn from it!

J. Mathews
Well, It is nice to see all the lights but back in India they turn cash into ash firing crackers, when there are thousands of people who struggle for good food.
