Diwali is an Indian festival which has gained a lot of prominence around the world. With an increasing number of Indian expatriates in every corner of the Globe, countries like Britain, United States and Australia etc have also assimilated the spirit of Diwali in their culture and celebrate the Festival of light with great fervor and joy.
