Having experienced a brief lull due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Diwali, the famous Indian festival of lights, returns to Dubai with much-anticipated pomp this year. Several Indian community leaders were interviewed by Al Arabiya English ahead of today’s festival to find out what the festival stands for now. The city has over three million Indian residents from Asia. This multi-day festival is traditionally observed by Hindus, Sikhs, and Jains as a symbol of light triumphing over darkness.

It is widely believed that Diwali celebrations will resume in full swing post-COVID after scaled-down events over the past two years, according to Puri. Old Dubai, mainly Karama and Bur Dubai, displays the festival’s vibrancy best with colorful LED lights, clay oil lamps, and flower decorations on apartment balconies.
