Indian light festival shines in Hanoi
Xem anh phong to
The Diwali Festival of Lights, one of India’s biggest national festivals, was celebrated in Hanoi on November 17, drawing more than 1,500 visitors from government bodies, enterprises, cultural agencies, and the expat community.

The event, co-organised by the Indian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (INCHAM) and the Indian embassy in Hanoi, was part of activities marking the 40th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties between India and Vietnam as well as the 5th year of Vietnam-India strategic partnership.

The festival was designed to help Vietnamese people broaden their understanding of the Indian people and land through a variety of cultural and art media including music and dance performances, fashion shows, and folk games. Pavilions featuring Indian culture, handicrafts, and culinary arts also entertained visitors.

Diwali roughly translates into the “festival of light”, a symbol of India’s ancient culture and its focus on overcoming ignorance through seeking the light of knowledge. The festival traditionally sees rich and poor families alike ignite small colorful lamps to greet Lakshmi, a deity of wealth.

The Diwali Festival has become a popular cultural event in Hanoi over the past several years and its celebration continues to annually expand.
