DIWALI NIGHT 2020 JW Marriott Hanoi

by The Tay Ho Times on 20/11/2020

Greetings from the Indian Business Chamber in Hanoi (INCHAM Hanoi)!

INCHAM Hanoi along with the Indian community is going to organize Diwali Night 2020 in Hanoi at JW Marriot Hotel on Saturday, 28th November 2020.

Diwali or Deepavali (Festival of Lights) is among one of the biggest festivals of India. It is celebrated as the victory of Good over Evil, Light over Darkness and Knowledge over Ignorance. Mythical tales shared on Diwali vary widely depending on the region and even with Hindu tradition, yet all share a common focus on righteousness, self-inquiry and the importance of knowledge which is the path to overcome the darkness of ignorance. One tradition links the festival to Hindu epic ‘Ramayana’ which narrates the struggle of the divine prince Rama to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana.

Diwali has a major religious significance for all religions including Hindus, Sikhs and Jains alike - not only in India, but also for Indians living abroad. In the Western calendar, Diwali falls in the month of either October or November every year, just after the monsoon season in India. The exact date varies and is calculated on the Hindu Lunisolar calendars. This date also marks the beginning of the Hindu New Year and many businesses in India starting a new accounting year on the Diwali holiday. 

Over the years, Diwali Night has become a permanent fixture in the capital’s cultural calendar, strengthening every year. This year, joining us are the distinguished guests from all walks of life including the Government, business, professional and cultural communities, and especially the vibrant expat community.

This year, a grand night is being organized which will “Bring the true Indian Cultural Spirit to Hanoi”. It’s highlighted by the colors and values of time-honored Indian culture, namely, Indian & International Cuisine, Musical performances, Live Bollywood dance performance, Yoga performance, Lucky draw with prizes, Henna artists & face painting.
