Jaiman Shah reports on a memorable Festival of Lights celebration for Diwali in Singapore.
After two regular annual events – International Day and Oktoberfest, it was Diwali which brought out the regional flavour in the NUS MBA program.
Diwali is the Indian festival of lights celebrated to mark the beginning of Hindu New Year. For Indians, it was a feeling of home away from home while for we introduced our culture to our batch mates. So much so that, Karla, our friend from Philippines, turned up in a red-n-black saree to celebrate Diwali in the authentic Indian style.
