Last Thursday evening, we got the opportunity to be be a part of the Diwali celebrations here at Dentsu.
Diwali is a Hindu celebration also known as the 'Festival of Lights', the festival symbolizes the 'victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance'. It is a large social event spent with loved ones bonding over food and exchanging gifts. People dress in their finest Indian attire and cook feasts to offer to the deities and for themselves to celebrate afterwards. Fireworks is an integral part of the festival as it signifies victory of light over darkness.
Our wonderful colleague, Kriti Singh educated us on the Hindu Holiday, we had an Indian feast and decorations up for the evening here at our Dentsu offices.
