Festival: Diwali 9 - 13 November 2007

HAPPY DIVALI GREETINGS TO ALL OUR INDIAN FRIENDS!!!
Diwali, is a major Hindu festival that is very significant in Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism. Known as the "Festival of Lights," it symbolises the victory of good over evil, and lamps are lit as a sign of celebration and hope for humankind. Celebrations focus on lights and lamps, particularly traditional dīpa or deeya (earthen lamp, as illustrated). Fireworks are associated with the festival. Diwali is a colloquial name used in North India, while the festival is formally called Deepavali in South India.

The Indian community in Daejeon will be getting together celebrate Diwali at ICS this Sunday.
