The Melbourne Star and Sydney Opera House were lit up to celebrate the Indian festival of lights, this weekend

The Melbourne star commemorated the Indian festival, the brotherhood between the two countries and the Indian community Down under by a resplendent light show which showcased the 3 colours of The ‘Indian Tiranga’ i.e. The Tricolour flag of India in all its glory. Meanwhile, the Sydney Opera House left the world awe-struck by lighting up its grandiose sails in beautiful hues of yellow and orange to mark the occasion. This effort alongside several other celebrations of the festival across the nation was an endeavour by Australia to celebrate Diwali alongside the thousands of Indians that call Australia home as well as Indians across the world.
