In last years we have repeatedly read in many press articles that Diwali is officially celebrated in many countries by the government, e.g., in USA White House. It is a great honor for all Hindus living all over the world that we have the opportunity to celebrate for the very first time Diwali officially at this historical Place in Imperial hall, Roemer. To celebrate the Diwali festival of lights which is most famous among Hindus, Jains and Sikhs all over the world, the “Deepavali”. The festival, which signifies the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil.

He won the Parliament elections of Frankfurt last year 2021 with over 162000 Votes. This News was also published in Times of India that time and in most other German Media. Mr. Rahul Kumar shares that “Diwali is a festival where families and friends come together to celebrate brotherhood, love, joy and unity. It is a great privilege to commemorate the festival by organizing and celebrating it with the Indian-German community by solidifying the bond among the countries. Most notable for me is that we are celebrating it in that great historical room and locality where the German Kings, Lords and famous world personality like the Queen Elizabeth or the Dalai Lama has their speeches.

It is a very proud moment and a great opportunity to represent the festival.

Positive changes in the world come from small acts of kindness; we are all capable of, just like a small Diya, which can erase any darkness by lighting up the entire environment. I wish everyone joy, bliss and harmony on this Diwali.

I feel and believe that this is the best way to represent the true values of Hindu culture, sacred tradition and sastras. We are celebrating together, building a bridge of trust and harmony, and showing respect to the root by representing the country.

Our Motto is: Diwali | Bring people together. Where there is unity there is always victory.
