The most important and best known Hindu holiday is upon us.

Diwali is the Indian Festival of Lights. Hindus traditionally light clay pots outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects from darkness. The festival in honor of the Goddess Lakshmi also involves family gatherings, fireworks, gifts for small children and the sharing of sweets. Radhika Khatkhate is helping to organize a Diwali celebration in Binghamton tomorrow.

"It always marks the classic truth of the victory of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance," said Khatkhate.

The Diwali Celebration takes place tomorrow at the Days Inn at 65 Front Street in Binghamton starting at 5 p.m. There will be food catered by Moghul, Indian musicians from New Jersey and dance performances by local children and B.U. students. Admission is $25 for adults, $15 for students and kids.
