As Senator for the ACT, it is my great pleasure to wish everyone in the Indian community a very happy Diwali.
The Indian community makes such a great contribution to Australian society and the festival of lights is a fantastic way to showcase the colourful spirit of India and adds to the rich tapestry of culture, heritage and diversity that makes our country such a vibrant place to live.
I am looking forward to attending some Diwali celebrations and performances over the next few weeks to absorb some of this dynamic and artistic culture. I also hope to have the opportunity to meet many members of the Indian community at these celebrations.
I wish you all well as you get together with your friends and family during these coming weeks to celebrate this festive occasion.
Senator Zed Seselja
