The time has come to celebrate the favourite festival of India and perhaps the Indian sub-continent, the festival of lights, Diwali.

Known as the day to light the 'diya' signifying an inner spiritual awakening, this year the grand Hindu festival falls on 23 October.

And just like any other years, the excitement is on the air with people already bursting the crackers, shopping and exchanging sweets.

But an essential part of the festival is always wishing the loved ones with messages of love and good wishes.
