Diwali ‘Mubarack’!

November 6, 2010 - President Barack Obama makes a state visit to India. The year prior, he became the first U.S. president to host a Diwali celebration at the White House. He made this statement:  “Last year, I marked this holiday as many will this weekend––by lighting the diya, or lamp.  This lamp symbolizes the victory of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.”
