Diwali, which falls between mid-October and mid-November, is depicted on the stamp with a lit diya oil lamp, a lamp traditionally used in many Hindu holidays. The stamp will first be issued on Oct. 5, and a first-day-of-issue dedication ceremony will also take place at the Consulate General of India in New York.
