Name: Gloria Jittansingh
What’s your current project: The celebration of the Hindu holiday, Diwali.
Why and how are you involved? Diwali is the Festival of Lights and a very important day of spiritual celebration for Hindus across the world. I am celebrating it here in Trinidad. Each year we fast the day before and the day after, clean my home and light diyas. All faiths celebrate this holiday as it is a very holy day – a time for reflection and time with the family.
