To the Hindus, it is a celebration of good winning over evil; it symbolises hope, renewed friendships, religious tolerance, peace, harmony, and the joys of life.

Also known as Diwali, this important Hindu event entails the lighting and flickering of oil lamps. During this occasion, the Hindu community worships Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth. Families also celebrate the New Year after Lakshmi Puja by wearing all-new clothing, donning jewellery, and visiting friends and family.

The Hindu Council of Australia plans the festivities in cooperation with other groups, with various cultural events happening at Prince Alfred Square in Parramatta. The event was well-attended by the community for its religious significance and because it had something to offer attendees of all ages.

There is a Ramayan presentation, a cultural extravaganza, a variety of foods, exciting rides, a special dance group from India, Ravan, and fireworks.
