Today we were visited by Rohan Nowani, a student at Miami and member of the Miami University Indian Student Association (ISA). The Indian holiday of Diwali was on Sunday, November 3. This coming weekend the group will be celebrating by putting on a Diwali Festival which will be a combination of fashion, music, and dance.

Rohan talked to all McGuffey students about the holiday of Diwali—its meaning, significance, and how they celebrate! We learned about lights, firecrackers, presents, and sweets. He showed us videos of dances and our students admired the intricate costumes.

Special thanks to Rohan for visiting us during this very busy week to teach us about Diwali. There will be two shows of the family-friendly Diwali celebration, Keeping Up with the Kapoors—Friday, November 8 at 7:00pm, and Saturday, November 9 at 2:00pm. You can easily purchase tickets online!
