Over the past weekend, FirstPathway Partners representative, Asif Chhipa joined residents of River Edge to celebrate the Navaratri festival and Diwali holiday with dancing, traditional treats, decorating lanterns and candle burning. The time of Diwali is one of the most festive and beautiful times of the year. Diwali, meaning a 'row of Lights' , is a time filled with light and love; a time when Indians all over the world rejoice. It is the darkest night of the darkest period, yet it is a celebration of light! Diwali is heralded as the triumph of good over evil. The meaning of Diwali, its symbols and rituals, and the reasons for celebration are innumerable.
