Happy Diwali!

  Diwali, the yearly Festival of Lights was very much expected by the children. We spent the day relaxing and playing. Then when the night fell, the children were offered pastries and new clothes. Al dressed up and the mouth full of sugar, they lit up small candles everywhere in Chaya.
But what exactly is Diwali about? In Hinduism, it is the homecoming of Lord Ram, after a 14-year exile in the forest and his victory over the evil demon-king Ravan.
Ifrez is explaining the story.
  Diwali also means a huuuge dinner. Everybody is mobilised is the kitchen to help, except the smaller boys who could have danced all night, who could have spread their wings and done a thousand things they've never done before!
(Yes, we definitely are musical fans !)
  The most exciting moment is to switch on Bengal lights…
The boys wish a very happy Diwali to you and your family. May light be in your hearts for a whole year.

And if that light can be turned into a sponsorship of one of the boys, you will have made that Diwali really exceptional!
