Hindus of all cultural backgrounds living in St. Maarten celebrated Diwali on Saturday. Diwali, known also as the festival of lights, sees persons share in prayers, decorate their homes and open their doors to host and feast with loved ones. It also recognises the triumph of good over evil and knowledge over ignorance.
