Canada embraces diversity. Living in Canada, I feel fortunate that I can maintain my cultural identity and celebrate all the festivals as I would have in India. That is why this painting is entitled, 'Diversité l’esprit canadien'. This watercolour painting depicts the festival of Diwali, the festival of light. It is celebrated on a dark night when there is no moon. The earthen lamps and electric lights illuminate the whole place. The homes and market places are decorated with flowers and lights.
Coming to Canada as an immigrant can be a challenging experience. It was for me when I first moved here. It was difficult to be in a new country with a complete different ways of operating in the society. However, the best thing about living in Canada is that it is a country where all ethnic groups feel welcome. People from diverse backgrounds add to the cultural diaspora of Canada. Different cultures bring their different cuisines, different customs, and different values. It adds to the richness of the society.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
