REPUBLIC OF SEYCHELLES, November 27, 2001: Hindus in Seychelles, a republic consisting of 115 islands located in the southwest of the Indian Ocean, are actively promoting their culture and contributing to the community at large. From coordinating a huge Diwali celebration to stocking a library with Hindu literature, plus affiliating itself with a Council in Africa and building a public crematorium, the Hindu Council of Seychelles is forging ahead. The Diwali festival itself ran for ten days in November and culminated with a grand fireworks display on November 24. Through negotiations with the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment, the Hindu Council is acquiring land to build a gas or electric crematorium for use by any community.
