Diwali: A time for Celebration and Reflection

Popularly known as the festival of lights, Diwali is a celebratory ritual that is celebrated worldwide. Diwali in Dubai has always been about lights and

diyas, fire crackers and fun. Then of course there is the heart-warming practice of exchanging gifts, sweets, and meeting with family, friends and neighbors to enjoy and celebrate a communal togetherness.

That’s just on the surface though. The Hindu philosophy underlying this festival is deeply imbibed in cultivating communal bonds and celebrating through the acts of kindness and giving.

As per the tradition, the day of Diwali is decided by the position of the moon. The day of Amavasya or ‘no moon day’ is considered the perfect day to celebrate by lighting up households and pathways with lights. It is also celebrated as the day Rama, Sita and Lakshman returned after 14 years of exile in the forest; a return which was symbolic of the triumph of good against evil.

To mark

an auspicious start to the Hindu New Year and one of the most celebrated Indian festivals, emQube rolled out a plan to meet and

greet our most valued customers. The charge, lead by MD Mohammed S., took it upon themselves to prepare goodie bags, decorate the office, get people to dress up for the occasion and enjoy a wonderful Chinese team lunch.

It was a day to remember…
