The USA elections are knocking the doors and the whole world will regrets the absence of one of the best president USA has ever got. His zeal and charisma for helping people makes him the greatest man ever to be born on earth. If we look at the elections, the world would want him to continue as the president. One thing is for sure, We will miss the presence of Barack Obama as the president of United States.

President Barack Obama celebrated Diwali in his office for the first time in 2009 and also became first ever US president to light the ceremonial Diya in the Oval Office.

Followed by lighting the diya, Obama had a message for everyone.

To all who are celebrating the festival of lights across America and around the world, happy Diwali. As Hindus, Jains, Sikhs, and Buddhists light the Diya, share in prayers, decorate their homes, and open their doors to host and feast with loved ones, we recognize that this holiday rejoices in the triumph of good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. It also speaks to a broader truth about our shared American experience. It’s a reminder of what’s possible when we see beyond the differences that too often divide us. It’s a reflection of the hopes and dreams that bind us together. And it’s a time to renew our collective obligation to deepen those bonds, to stand in each other’s shoes and see the world through each other’s eyes, and to embrace each other as brothers and sisters – and as fellow Americans.I was proud to be the first President to host a Diwali celebration at the White House in 2009, and Michelle and I will never forget how the people of India welcomed us with open arms and hearts and danced with us in Mumbai on Diwali. This year, I was honored to kindle the first-ever Diya in the Oval Office – a lamp that symbolizes how darkness will always be overcome by light. It is a tradition that I hope future Presidents will continue.

On behalf of the entire Obama family, I wish you and your loved ones peace and happiness on this Diwali.
