Highlight Story

Diwali was celebrated in the Union Territory of Puducherry with traditional gaiety and fervor by the people.

Clad in new garments, the young and old visited temples early in the morning and sought the blessings of the Almighty.

Lt Governor Iqbal Singh, Chief Minister V Vaithilingam, his cabinet colleagues and Union Minister V Narayanasamy were among those who greeted the people.

Diwali this year was marked by absence of the usual sound of bursting of crackers as people heeded appeals by the Revenue and Disaster Management department to adhere to various `dos and donts` in the bursting of the crackers.
