Despite all the lucrative deals offered by the travel agencies, I have always preferred to celebrate Diwali at home. But this time I am in London, away from my family, missing all the fun, the lights, the sweets, decorated markets, malls and the list goes on.
Meanwhile, I came across this great Diwali event organised by Mayor of London at Trafalgar Square, London and without any great expectations, I decided to attend the event. To my surprise, it was super duper awesome. With performances by various artists and well known performers such as Karan Pangali, Bollywood Brothers and at the last the great Sitar player Anoushka Shankar, who totally rocked the stage with her outstanding performance. What more can we expect?
Not only the event was treat for eyes and ears, it also brought together delicacies from all over India. From famous Chaat of Delhi to Masala Dosa of Kerala, from Milk shakes to Coconut water. Tempted with all the Indian delicacies together at one place, I was spotted most of the time near the food stalls.
Though it was pretty chilly and windy, but the energy of the crowd made the atmosphere real warm. From classical dance to grooving Bollywood numbers and then to Sitar and the fusion.
Well, the event was a total hit and definitely a wonderful gift to all the Indians in London for Diwali 2013. I hope you all enjoy your Diwali and be safe.
Let there be light and peace! Happy Diwali!!
