It is interesting and noteworthy how the festival of Diwali is marked in different parts of the UK. Unique events range from cultural programs at a variety of venues to staff parties in the corporate sector.
To mark this special occasion, the iconic London eye changed its colour to celebrate the festival of lights recently.
Speaking to Asian Lite correspondent, organiser Ravi Bhanot MBE says “We are grateful that London Eye and the Diwali in London Committee helped organise the event.”. “It is amazing that Diwali, the festival of lights, this year sees the London Eye change colour to rangoli colours and also sees a man of colour as the first Prime Minister of Great Britain, on the same day.”
Lord Rami Ranger, who switched the London Eye colour said, “It is nice to see London enjoy the diversification of culture. It makes the country strong.”
