We had a great Deepavali celebrations in our customer office, huge one. It is rather Indian Cultural celebrations, projected India's North, South, East and West regions, folk dances from different parts, regular mehendi stalls and Bindis, bangles are give aways.
People who attended are so excited and always wonder about India. I was involved in putting the North Region stall displaying the places to visit, monuments, food, dress, dance, music and wedding. Why am I picked North, because South had more volunteers. And I wanted to learn about North and I learnt a lot.
We all felt like exams are over because too much of craft work, chart, banners, decorations and finally we felt nothing to do.
Another interesting thing for Deepavali celebrations, Tamil, Kannanda, Telugu and Indian Association had separate celebrations. And on top, City of San Antonio bursted fireworks for the first time and Mayor did a speech for Deepavali.
I always waited for the 2 days to come so that I could do fireworks. But, this time I felt too much celebrations without parents, sweets, new dress, fireworks. Then what the heck was this for...
