Diwali is an annual festival of the victory of light over darkness, of the good over evil. Every year, we lights and lanterns, we burst firecrackers to celebrate all the good in the world.
But, is the world really good? With all the poverty, illiteracy, discrimination, is the light really winning over evil?
I’m an optimistic person, and I believe in humanity. Yes, there are some horrendous people walking the earth, but there are also people who have died to improve someone else’s life. This gives me hope.
