A young family in India is about to celebrate Diwali, the ancient Hindu festival of lights, in contemporary times.

It is a gem for young children, from all backgrounds, to learn about the nation’s culture and traditions for it is told through the eyes of a child who holds a deep reverence for the goddess Lakshmi.
