This year Diwali will celebrate the different cultural traditions surrounding this event within India. Students will be taken on a simulated journey from Northern to Southern India, while participating members of the South Asian Society perform dance and prayers associated with that region. Students that visit Northern India will have a chance to see the lighting of the Golden Temple, which marks a significant tradition in the November festivity.
The observance of Diwali will also include traditional dances performed by students in the South Asian Society. Participants will also enjoy a full Indian buffet, sponsored by High Bombay restaurant.
