On Friday, the Indian Student Council hosted their annual Diwali celebration. Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights that represents the triumph of good over evil and light over dark, is one of the most significant celebrations in India. Students at the University of New Haven gathered to commemorate Diwali, and enjoy traditions they shared with their families growing up.
