Bournemouth University celebrated Diwali in style last week, with a whole afternoon of exciting celebrations organised by BU’s Bharatiya Club and Global BUzz.
This years Diwali festivities took place on Wednesday 11th November, with both staff and students at BU getting involved in the colourful celebrations.
Guests were welcomed to the event with a traditional Hindu greeting, before settling in for some Bollywood dancing, traditional Indian food and a few words from renowned Indian author, Meena Kandasamy.
BU’s regional manager for India, Kamila Kharebashvili, helped organise the event, saying: “Celebrating Diwali helps students who are studying abroad get a sense of home, while allowing other students to join in on the fun.”
