Happy Diwali!


Diwali, the five-day “Festival of Lights”, is one of the most popular and celebrated holidays in India.  The festival gets its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from spiritual darkness. Diwali marks a spiritual awakening and symbolizes “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance”.

There are several ways to say Happy Diwali:

  • In Hindi: “Diwali ki Shubhkamnayein” or “Shush Deepavali”
  • In Punjabi: “tuhanu Diwali diyan bohat both vadhaiyan”
  • In Gujarati: “Diwali ni mubarak or saal Mubarak”
  • In Tamil: “Deepavali nalvazhthukal”

What is significant and uplifting with respect to Diwali and my firm is that many of our clients observe Diwali as they are enjoying the campuses of their top-choice colleges which include, although are not limited to Brown, RPI, Boston University, Case Western, Cornell, Rice, Harvard, Yale and Dartmouth.  Many are now in the corresponding medical schools of their undergraduate BS/MD programs.

This year, on day four, I was given gifts and invited to participate in Diwali, with clients who are now friends whose children were accepted to Harvard, Brown (undergraduate), Brown PLME, Harvard, Yale, Cornell and Columbia.
