Celebrate and Discover with Diwali Night
Nov. 15, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ill.— Students can enjoy a night of celebration, conversation and education
while contributing to an important cause with the South Asian Student Association’s
Diwali Night. All proceeds and donations will go directly to the Philippines for relief
from Typhoon Haiyan. There will be free admission to the Sunday, November 24 event,
which will begin at 6 p.m. in Hansen Student Center (300 E. Beecher St., Bloomington).
A free dinner will be served at 6 p.m., with performances starting at 6:30 p.m. Musical
acts, dances, henna tattoos and a fashion show are some highlights of the event.
As one of the most well-known Hindu festivals, Diwali, which translates to “row of
lights,” is a five-day harvest festival. Diwali is commonly known as the festival
of lights because small clay lamps are displayed across homes and stores, symbolizing
the holiday’s message of good over evil, light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance.
