Diwali celebration 2009 at Yahoo! | Event Photography

{November 26, 2009}

Our campus celebrated Diwali a few weeks back. We captured many memorable moments of skits, food, colors and everything imaginable with the beautiful festivities.

Diwali roughly translates to a row of lamps. According to wikipedia

The word दीपावली(Dipavali) literally translates as a row of lamps in Sanskrit[1]. It is traditional for adherents of Diwali-celebrating faiths to light small clay lamps (or Deep in Sanskritदीप) filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil within an individual. During Diwali, many wear new clothes and share sweets/snacks with each other. Some Indian business communities start their financial year by opening new account books on the first day of Diwali for good luck the following year.
