Diwali, the Hindu ‘Festival of Lights’, will be celebrated tomorrow, on the Wednesday 7th November.

For those taking part, it’s a celebration of goodness overcoming evil, light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair.

Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists will also commemorate this day with food, sweets and fireworks.

Sikhs honour the day as Bandi Chhor Divas, which marks the release of Guru Hargobind and coincides with Diwali. While Jains observe the day as final liberation of Mahavira; and Buddhists celebrate as part of their worship of goddess Laxmi.

I Am Birmingham reporters Nikhara Korpal and Zohair Ali  asked young Brummies how they celebrate Diwali, and why they look forward to the celebration.

With thanks to the students of BIrmingham City University (BCU).
