Diwali is a major festival for Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists, and Jains, who believe that light is a metaphor for knowledge and signifies health, wealth and peace. All ages are welcome to take part in the folk art festivities, which will include a classical music performance (sarod and tabla), classical dance performances (Kathak and Bharata Natyam) and a hands-on art project where you can paint your own diya (mini clay pot) representing sakshi, the divine inner light.
