Unique Diwali by celebration by Vindu DaraSingh

Kolkata,October 21,2014 (Washington Bangla Radio):About Diwali Vindu Dara Singh says, “Diwali is a time for celebrations and the best way to do that is lights! I don't burn crackers that pollute and make noise and till last year would put those Chinese lights in our home. This year it will be just Diyas and candles that we bought in Mahableshwar made by lots of blind workers who live with Bhavesh Bhatia and his wife proud and happy lighting other people's lifes while living in darkness !.... I wish every Indian a very happy Diwali and hope all the Raavans in politics get burnt and only the good survive. Jai Hind.”
