AGARTALA, Oct 29 (TIWN): Pre-Diwali celebration was organized at Akhura Border by India's Border Security Force (BSF) and Border Guards Bangladesh (BGB).

Both country's Jawans have lighted candles, exchanged sweets with each other aimed to strengthen the India-Bangladesh security relations. 

BSF officials gave sweet boxes to Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) official while greeting them on the occasion of Diwali, which is celebrated nationwide on November 7. 

Diwali is the occasion to keep away hatred and spread love among the people.  To mark the celebration, every spot is illuminated with sparkling diyas which bring the supernatural brightness and joy with the hope of finding light in darkness, and spreading love amidst hatred. Some people use decorated light candles, some decorated diya or clay lamps, and other decorative lights and put them in their windows for the festival. Traditionally people use 'earthen lamps' with cotton wicks and oil to light up the dark night. 

The exchange of sweets between India and Bangladesh along the border is a traditional practice aimed at improving bilateral relations. BSF and BGB exchange sweets and greetings during various festivals like Diwali, Eid, Holi, Independence Day and Republic Day.
