Bishop of Pune Rt Rev Thomas Dabre has extended his greetings to people on the occasion of Diwali.
In a statement issued here on Monday, Dabre said, "On behalf of the Christian community, I extend our good wishes to all Hindu brothers and sisters."
"The dream of Diwali, however, cannot be realised without the bedrock of morality and spirituality. Absence of morality and spirituality is the root of all our problems," he added.
