I found this via the Acumen Fund on The Atlantic and was really taken by the beauty of these images. Diwali is a five day festival of lights and it's a time when people come together to worship good over bad and to ward off evil spirits. It's celebrated by people of many faiths and results in lots of color, light, dancing and gratitude. Review the original gallery at the Atlantic.
