Diwali Celebrations at IBA Boys Hostel, Karachi
Nov 4, 2017: IBA Boys Hostel lit up with fireworks amidst the
students’ cheers. Fire lamps and fancy lights adorned the
surroundings and crafty Rangoli (artwork made by colored rice)
added zest to the usual dull environs. This was Diwali, IBA
style. Organized by students from Hindu community with the
support of IBA Boys Hostel Committee and its management.
The festival started with the religious rituals (Laxmi Pooja, worship of the goddess of wealth) performed by many hostelites, with active participation of students from different religious backgrounds at IBA Boys Hostel. The patron and the superintendent of IBA Boys Hostel, Mr. Jami Moiz, also joined in the festivities, which culminated on a sumptuous dinner.
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.
