From the publisher:
This book portrays the author’s memory of Divali in Trinidad during the 1980’s. At that time the author lived in a home in Trinidad with her close knitted extended family of twelve. Divali was very important to the Bissambhar family and from weeks before, the preparations would begin. Her memory of Divali is a sweet one , of the entire family working together to get the house ready and of them performing Lakshmi Puja together on Divali night. Divali as I knew it in Trinidad tells the story as the author remembers the excitement and preparations from the night before Divali, which continues as Divali day unfolds. The author shares a simple beautiful story that will awaken your own memories of Divali and inspire you to create new Divali traditions….
