Happy Diwali to our Community!
Here at Broadley, we love to work with all different sectors of our community in London and understand how important it is to support young people during their time at university. This project promoted the KCL Diwali Show, a youth initiative, helping bring Indian communities together in London while promoting Indian cultures to the British public. The KCL Diwali Show showcases the very best of India’s dance culture, bringing together genres of dance from across India and different dances throughout India’s history. It’s a beautiful, inspiring celebration of Indian culture and the Festival of Light Diwali.
Our team helped the students capture the essence of this joyous occasion and provided studio, crew and equipment to make the promotional film possible. It provided a glimpse into the vibrant traditions and heartfelt dance performances of the KCL Diwali Show. Stay tuned for the release of our promo video and get ready to be immersed in the spirit of light and joy!
Diwali holds a special place in the hearts of millions around the world. Its origins can be traced back to ancient Hindu mythology and has evolved over the centuries into a joyous and vibrant celebration.
According to legend, Diwali commemorates the return of Lord Rama, accompanied by his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana, to their kingdom in Ayodhya after 14 years of exile. The people of Ayodhya welcomed their beloved prince by lighting rows of diyas (oil lamps) to guide his way in the darkness.
To this day, the lighting of diyas remains a central tradition of Diwali. These small lamps, made of clay or brass, are placed in homes and around courtyards, symbolizing the victory of light over darkness and the triumph of good over evil. The warm glow of the lamps creates a magical and inviting atmosphere, spreading a sense of peace and warmth throughout the festivities.
Another cherished tradition of Diwali is the exchange of gifts and sweets among friends and family. This act of giving represents mutual love and respect, as well as an expression of gratitude for the blessings received in the past year.
Diwali is a time to honour the goddess Lakshmi, the Hindu deity of wealth and prosperity. Devotees offer prayers and perform rituals to seek her blessings for a prosperous year ahead. It is believed that Lakshmi visits homes that are clean and well-lit, bringing good fortune to those residing within.
Throughout Diwali, the air is filled with laughter, music, and the scent of traditional delicacies being prepared in every household. Fireworks light up the night sky, adding a dazzling display of colours and patterns. Families come together, dressed in their finest attire, to share meals, exchange stories, and participate in cultural performances.
The significance of Diwali goes beyond religious boundaries. It embodies the spirit of unity, hope, and the triumph of good over evil, values that resonate with people from all walks of life. Diwali is a time to reflect on the importance of spreading light, love, and joy towards fellow human beings, fostering a sense of togetherness and compassion.
