Members of the Hindu community celebrated goodness and forgiveness Sunday night during the annual festival of Diwali. “We come together, dance together, sing together,” said Arun Chaudharl, one of the organizers of the Quincy event.

“This is a worldwide festival now, because Hindus are living all over the world.” Diwali celebrates the triumph of good over evil within an individual and the coming of the New Year for Hindus. It is called the Indian community’s Festival of Light.
