An ability to hold your ground is what makes you stronger. Diwali is about understanding what makes you tick and surrounding yourself with all that genuinely care for who you are. Allowing yourself to recognise your own ability makes you stronger and able to figure yourself in the quiet light of the lamps, candles and diyas. You emerge with a sense of steel that shows about at work and in all you do as you turn your head towards the real and diligent.
