Wishing that darkness in all hearts and minds of people would disappear and rays of peace and harmony would illumine the lives of all throughout the year, Jaffna soldiers and civilians celebrated DEEPAVALI in high profile in the Jaffna city centre on Tuesday, November 13th night.

All main streets in the city were decorated with colourful electric bulbs and coconut oil lamps by the soldiers serving under the SF-J. The main function took place in front of the central bus stand on the Hospital Road around 7.00 p.m. where Commander Security Forces Jaffna (SF-J) Major General Mahinda Hathurusinghe, Mayoress Jaffna Mrs. Yogeswari Pathgunarasa, Assistant Government Agent Jaffna Mrs. S. Theventhra, DIG Jaffna Erick Perera and a few distinguished guests lit the traditional coconut oil lamp at auspicious time.

A large crowd gathered at the venue to attend this significant Hindu celebration of light or Deepa.

According to Hindu belief, Lord Krishna defeated Asuras in a battle which symbolizes the victory over evil.
