THE Labasa Town Council management yesterday treated staff members to lunch to celebrate the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali.

Macuata provincial administrator Josefa Rokonai said all religious festivals had a message of love for all mankind in that they instilled in the society the message of wisdom, love and understanding.

"While Diwali is popularly known as the festival of lights, the most significant spiritual meaning is the awareness of the inner light and the removal of spiritual darkness.

"It reflects on the victory of good over evil giving every man a hope that good will always prevail over evil and light over darkness," he said.

Labasa and Savusavu town's special administrator Vijay Chand said everyone should focus on the great message of enlightenment and love that the celebration was associated with.
