All the performances were great and the food was just awesome! The performers were energetic and full of life. At the end of the event the attendees danced to the tune of the Bollywood songs played by a professional DJ who came from Mumbai.
Local stand-up comedian Harmeet Singh Kohli was the Emcee of the event who did a fantastic job in engaging the public with his jokes and exciting games.
Diwali is one of the grandest celebrations for the Indian community – the festival of light. It represents the triumph of good over evil, light over darkness, and wisdom over ignorance. It is an honorific celebration for the ancient legend of Lord Rama, who was deprived of his true kingdom and sent into exile for 14 years. Diwali celebrates Rama’s eventual defeat of the evil “asura” Ravana, and his consequent triumphant return to his homeland.
