The festival of lights is just around the corner and it seems like India is not the only country set to celebrate the festival in all its splendour.

In a heartwarming gesture, the United Nations postal agency has released a special stamp sheet to commemorate the festival and show solidarity towards India.

Setting an example that festivals are meant to bring people from all castes, creeds and across borders together, the UNPA took to Twitter to make the announcement.

Each stamp sheet has ten stamps with diyas and lights in various colours and costs about 14.95 USD, which is about Rs 1100 in Indian currency.

Also, don’t miss the night-time photograph of the UN headquarters building illuminated with the message of “Happy Diwali”!
