USPS FOREVER STAMP HONORS THE HINDU FESTIVAL DIWALI. In an act that showcases America's religious harmony and cultural equality, the U.S. Postal Service will be issuing a special “Diwali Forever” stamp to commemorate the Hindu festival of Diwali. America has a sizable number of Hindus, Sikhs and adherents of other Indian religions. Diwali being a festival common to all of them, the Postal Department saw it as apt to issue stamps that would be representative of the nation's participation in the celebrations of the communities.
