DSPI Ghana hosts Diwali Musical Show

DSPI Ghana hosts Diwali Musical Show

THE Delhi Public School International (DPSI) Ghana has hosted a special musical show in commemoration of this year's Diwali, India's Festival of Lights.

Diwali, which means a row or collection of lamps, is an annual Festival of Lights and it is to the Hindus or Indians what Christmas is to the Christians, and most importantly to DPS International Ghana and its Director, Mukesh Thakwani, Diwali is an occasion “to make everyone feel truly important and special.”
This was seen in how Mr Thakwani and his staff from DPSI and B5 Plus Steel Company Limited treated their guests on the night with much respect and kind courtesies.
It is celebrated every year around the period of autumn with great joy and enthusiasm throughout India and in Indian communities across the world.
During the celebration, key activities are undertaken by Hindus, and these include sharing of gifts with friends and loved ones, networking and building business contacts, placing lanterns in open gardens, and that was exactly what happened during the show at DPSI Ghana Tema Community 25-based campus.
The show, which took place at the school's open garden from dusk till dawn, saw the lighting of lamps, lanterns and, above all, the display of rich Indian cultures.
Couples, including the Indian High Commissioner to Ghana, Shri Birender Singh, and his wife, children and youth, as well as businessmen and women from all walks of life, had the opportunity to fraternise during the occasion.
The couples were challenged to a dancing competition for a cash reward to be given in US dollars.
A few days before Diwali, houses, buildings, shops and temples in India or Indian societies around the world are thoroughly cleaned, white-washed and decorated with pictures, toys and flowers.
