Hindu devotees around the world celebrated the beginning of the annual Festival of Lights, or Diwali, on Nov. 7, 2018. The celebration – marked by the lighting of multiple candles, artwork made by colored sand, and traditional dances – commemorates the driving out of evil by light by the Hindu god Lord Rama over the demon Ravana.
