Celebrating Light and Prosperity: Diwali Festival Illuminates AzMI
November 13, 2023
In a vibrant and joyous celebration, the Asian Medical Institute (AzMI) recently played host to Diwali, one of the grandest festivals of the Indian diaspora. The festivities, marked by exuberance and enthusiasm, unfolded over five days, with the third-day holding particular significance as the main event—the Festival of Lights.
During this captivating festival, homes and surroundings are adorned with vibrant colors, and the night sky comes alive with dazzling fireworks. Traditional deepa lamps and candles are lit, casting a warm glow symbolizing the quest for knowledge and the triumph of light over darkness. At the heart of Diwali is the invocation of Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, with hopes for a year filled with abundance.
Diwali, often likened to the European New Year, transcends cultural boundaries, bringing people together to share in the spirit of light, joy, and renewed beginnings. AzMI’s celebration of Diwali not only reflects the institute’s embrace of cultural diversity but also serves as a reminder of the unity found in the shared celebration of traditions, fostering a sense of community and understanding among students and staff.
