HAPPY DEEPAVALI TO ALL HINDUS IN MALAYSIA AND ELSEWHERE. And, happy long weekend to the rest of Malaysia. Be safe.
The name Diwali is a contraction of the word "Deepavali" (Sanskrit: दीपावली Dīpāvali), which translates into row of lamps. Diwali involves the lighting of small clay lamps (divas) (or Deep in Sanskrit: दीप) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. Source: Wikipedia
