Little India

Preparing for the Festival of Lights.

We visited a very busy street here in Klang yesterday.

It was filled with shoppers preparing for Diwali, which is to be held this coming Wednesday, 26th. October.

A lovely hanging 'lantern' is one of the modern contraption that was found selling in Jalan Tengku Kelana, Klang yesterday.

Shops and stalls were geared up selling everything related to the festival ranging from clothes, sweets, balloons, fireworks, etc... to a heavy crowd before a rain storm sets in.

It was also a photographers' delight as sellers willingly obliged to strike many poses with glee.
It also gave us a nostalgic feeling of closeness amongst our multi racial population, built up during the years of togetherness here in Malaysia.

With beautiful festivals like this, we sincerely wish that despite all present negativities 'others' are creating, cool down 'hot heads' so that it would not drive sanity into a deep hole.

To all our Hindu friends, Happy Diwali.

May the Lights shine on our path forever.
