November: Celebrating Diwali-The Festival of Lights 2015
Student Affairs held its third VIU Diversity Luncheon Series 3: Celebrating Diwali-The Festival of Light on November 12, 2015. The purpose of the event was to educate students about why people celebrate Diwali. To open the event, Dr. Ramesh Ravella talked about Diwali and the significance of the event. We then enjoyed listening to the song Kamal Kuchawhich was sung by Krishnaveni. The students participated in a traditional Ramp Walk where men and women dressed in beautiful outfits. Traditional Indian food was served while watching Arun and Akshitha perform dances and Praneeth, Hasan, Nishat and Sam sing traditional Hindi songs.
