Ayodhya, Nov 7: The First lady of South Korea Kim Jung-Sook said that the festival like Diwali which symbolizes victory of light over darkness binds the culture of India and South Korea because ‘candlelight’ revolution has helped in building strong South Korea.
“Light has a meaningful expression because it is believed in South Korea that if you light a candle you can conquer darkness.
I see the same philosophy in Diwali where people celebrate victory of good over evil.
What I saw in candlelight revolution in South Korea finds its reflection in festival of light in India,” Kim Jung-sook said while addressing gathering here during Deepostava programme on Tuesday.
South Korea’s Candlelight Revolution was the culmination of a sustained protest movement that brought out over 16 million people—almost a third of the country’s population – on the streets. (UNI)
