In an unprecedented move, Australia's Victorian state will this year light up major installations including its parliament, airport and Indian consulate during Diwali, apparently to placate the feelings of Indians angry over a spate of attacks against them.

Under a seven-day long lighting competition being organised by Celebrate India Inc and beginning from October 10, prime buildings in Melbourne will be lit up, event coordinator of the organisation Arun Sharma said.

"For the first time Melbourne departure lounge and Indian Consulate will be decorated apart from the state parliament building, Horsham council, museums and other parts of the city, and cultural programmes like dhol programme and rangoli events will be held there," he added. PTI
