Namaste aur shubh kamanae. Happy Diwali to you and your families!
This is such an important time of year and one of my favourite celebrations because you see our community come together and put on such a vivid display of everything that makes the Indian culture so special and unique.
It’s about more than just the colour and entertainment though. Diwali is about recognizing the best in each and every one of us.
As the tradition teaches us we come together to observe the victory of light over darkness, and although this is our primary opportunity to reflect on this positive outlook, I don’t limit it to just a few days or weeks each year.
Every day I think, ‘how can I be the best version of myself?’, as a mother, a wife, a businesswoman, and as a hard working Member of Parliament standing up for your interests. I’m bringing this positive attitude to my campaign to represent Mt Roskill as its next electorate MP. I am thankful for the support I have received from so many of you.
To all of you, I wish you all the best and hope you enjoy the Diwali celebrations.
