Fall 2019 International Event Dhamaka-Diwali NightOn January 11, 2020 by Carley Grace
On October 26, 2019, the Indian Student Association hosted its annual Diwali night. The event took place at the Reynolds Performing Arts Center on campus and featured students from the Indian Student association in traditional and regional Indian clothing. The students also rehearsed and performed modern and traditional versions of Indian music and dances. Indian food was served following the performances and festivities, but unfortunately, I was unable to partake. From what I understand, the spice levels were considerably toned down for those less familiar with Indian cuisine. The performances and demonstrations were undeniably the pride and joy of the night’s festivities. Each spectacle left the crowd in a spectacular tizzy. It was loud and demonstrative and completely captivating; everyone’s toddler and great grandmother had a blast that night and I simply cannot wait to attend Diwali Night 2020!!!
