Diwali at Deepmala

Diwali is a festival to rejoice victory of the good over the evil, a day to mark fresh start and new beginnings. Of the 10 or so Diwali events happening around town Ekam decided to be part of last week's Deepmala; Diwali celebrations by UBC's Utsav Club. The event was held at UBC's campus in Vancouver. Beautiful display of fireworks kicked off the evening that only got better with amazing preformances from Vancouver's upcoming talent Shivangi Bhanaya, and Rene Chandra. Bhangra by a team of young students, punjabi folk singing, and a classical dance performance added masalas to the flavor of the evening. A hilarious hindi skit by UBC students, Cheer Haran, was just the kind of finale that was fit for an event like this. Organizing team and voluteers consisting mainly of students should be commended for putting together a splendid display of Indian culture and festivities.

Ekam Wishes everyone a Very Happy Diwali!
