International Education Week 2012 : Diwali

Diwali "Festival of Lights"

TED Convocation Center | 6:00pm-8:00pm

India's largest and most important national holiday of the year has been celebrated throughout the centuries by most Indians around the world regardless of faith: Hindus, Jains, Buddhists, and Sikhs. The festival receives its name from the row (avali) of clay lamps (or deepa) that Indians light outside their homes to symbolize the inner light that protects people

from spiritual darkness.
