The festival of lights “Diwali“, is India’s biggest celebration where homes, institutions and entire neighborhoods are decorated with candles, earthen lamps and fairy lights on this auspicious moonless night.
Indeed, the festive fever gets tedious, lifeless and even unexciting if we do not get a chance to visit our hometown or native place.
Hi, I am Sarani Chakraborty.
This year for the first time, I celebrated Diwali away from home, but this year I realized that celebration can be this memorable even if the home is far.
A five-day festival, Diwali is celebrated as the homecoming of Lord Rama with Sita and Laxmana after a long exile of 14 years.
Traditionally different regions of India have diverse ways of celebrating Diwali.
So at Logezy, we celebrated Diwali in our unique way.
We started with some fun games. Then we had a little discussion on why and what the belief is behind the Diwali Celebrations in Northern Part of India and Southern India. Then we had many cultural events. Some of our beloved colleagues performed their talents. We had solo song performance, group dance, solo dance, group song and much more. Then we all together went to the roof to light the “Diyas” to decorate a little and to follow the tradition as well. The celebration ended up with lots of Sweets and sweet memories.
This year we celebrated Diwali for the first time at Logezy and I had a great evening with my new family.
