Happy Diwali and Ningol Chakouba

Happy DiwaliHappy Diwali to everybody!!! This year, Diwali is being celebrated today – Nov 12. Kali Puja in West Bengal was yesterday (Nov 11). Diwali is the festival of lights and is one of the most important festivals for Indians worldwide.
Manthan – the Indian Students Association at UTK celebrated Diwali couple of days back – on Oct 31. The reason was that was the only date the UC Auditorium was available before Nov 12.
Ningol Chakouba is on Nov 14. (Ningol=daughter of the family, chakouba=invite to a feast). It is a festival which celebrated in my home state – Manipur. On this day, parents invite their married daughters and their children to a feast and share experiences. Sort of like a family reunion. It’s a lot of fun and the food is great!
