In Malaysia, as in India, Diwali -- which means "rows of lighted lamps" -- is a time for Hindus to rejoice.
To prepare for Diwali, which is known as the "festival of lights", Hindus spring-clean their homes, prepare special meals and adorn dwellings and other buildings with lights.
On the day itself (Oct 26, 2011) they wear new clothes, say prayers, exchange gifts usually sweets (pictures) and dried fruits and visit family and friends.
Life's Too Short wishes its Hindu readers a Happy Diwali.
