The Association of Indian Students at MIT organized Diwali Night. The events included a nice Indian dinner followed by cultural activities.
The cultural activities were more cultural than I thought. There was classical music, carnatic music, bhartanatyam, Dandiya Raas and a Bollywood Dhamaka dance. The performances of the students were professional to the core. On the whole it was a well organized event and a memorable evening.
Wishing you a wonderful Diwali! Read more about Diwali here.
