Looking for other ways to celebrate Diwali in your classroom or public library? Host a Diwali night with any or all of the following features:

  • Serve authentic Indian cuisine (a local restaurant would likely to be willing to donate light fare!)
  • Make rangoli, all you need is some colored rice or powder and a lot of creativity. Provide the materials and let everyone create their own design.
  • Provide a henna tattoo artist to decorate children’s hands with beautiful designs.
  • Hire a storyteller to enchant attendees with the history and mythology behind Diwali.
  • Play a Bollywood film or Indian music in the background for people to enjoy while sampling food or waiting for a henna tattoo.
  • Hand out diyas to those in attendance. What would a festival of lights be without lights?

    Really interesting! I never thought about it.

  2. Ramachandran:

    I feel I would get more confidence if I speak more in hindi with some one. I feel a bit hesitant in hindi as I feel I would commit grammatical mistakes while speaking. Hence to gain confidence I am looking for a tutor to speak with him or her in hindi say for about half an hour every day till I gain confidence. I stay at Bangalore and I need help. I am prepared to pay the necessary tuition fee.
