Diwali Festival Celebrations at RU

One of the most significant festivals in Indian culture, Diwali, the festival of lights, sees millions attend firework displays, prayers and celebratory events across the world every year.

The festival is celebrated by Hindus, Sikhs and Jains for a variety of reasons, although the main theme which runs throughout is the triumph of light over darkness and good over evil.

To celebrate, houses are decorated with candles and colourful lights and huge firework displays are held while families feast and share gifts.

RU held their celebrations yesterday 18th October 2017, in a brief colourful ceremony. The VC and one of RU’s directors, Juju, led the community in lighting the candles at the graduation square.

Below are a few photos from the function.
