On behalf of the SBCS GLI community, I would like to extend Divali greetings, to members of the Hindu faith both here in Trinidad and Tobago as well as around the globe.
The message of Divali is ever-present: the triumph of light over darkness, of knowledge over ignorance, of courage over fear, of good over evil, of joy over sorrow, of harmony over discord…
Today, we live in a period of great uncertainty brought on by the Pandemic as well as an acceptance of the very real dangers posed by climate change. It has become clear that we must each do our part to restore balance to our planet. The occasion of Divali is an ideal time for reflection by Hindus and Non-Hindus alike, as only by working together will we be able to surmount the issues facing us.
May the divine light of the universe continue to illuminate our paths and inspire us to lead sublime lives.
Wishing each of you a joyous and peaceful Divali 2021.
