Diwali, the festival of lights, is being celebrated across the concrete city of Guwahati with earthen lamps and lights.
Dr B Borooah Cancer Institute also joined the celebration with their patients and staff on Monday.
As the patients won’t be able to join the celebration in the evening so they celebrated in the day itself by lighting earthen lamps and sparklers.
Sweets were also distributed to about 500 patients and staff.
Diwali is one of the most popular festivals in India. It is believed that Lord Rama completed his fourteen years of exile and returned to his kingdom Ayodhya where lots of earthen lamps were lit up to welcome him.
Various offices, residential houses and apartments are decorated with lights across Assam.
