Deepavali or Diwali, the festival of lights and the most important festival widely celebrated by Hindus and Indians in numerous countries, is the day when oil lamps are lighted up to thank the gods for the happiness, peace, knowledge and wealth that the Hindus and Indians have received.
While Deepavali or Diwali is celebrated with lots of open houses and jovial savoring of mouth-watering cuisine and delicacies in Malaysia, on a more spiritual level, it is actually the celebration of the inner light that lightens up one’s mind and burns away ego, anger and greed.
In this special October, we at Exabytes wish all Hindus and Indians a Happy Deepavali, and everybody a Happy Holiday!
In conjunction of this celebration, our office will be closed on 26 October 2011 and resume operation on 27 October 2011. In case you require any technical assistance, don’t worry, as our professional technical staff will still be working 24×7 to assist you day and night.
