Diwali is a festival of lights and is one of the biggest and most significant religious festivals of Hindu community, which is celebrated across the world. It is celebrated in the happiness of homecoming of Lord Ram, after 14 years of living in exile. He is one of the 24 incarnations of Hindus’ Lord Vishnu. Lord Ram came on this planet to destroy the evils of a demon named Ravan and many others.

This event like many others is a small effort in bringing harmony among different religions in our society. We owe special gratitude to Mr. Jami Moiz, Superintendent IBA Boys Hostel and Mr. Mujahid Hussain Detho, Warden IBA Boys Hostel for helping us put up a successful event.
