The Indian Student Association will be hosting it’s annual Diwali show tomorrow to celebrate the Festival of Lights in the Hughes-Trigg Ballroom from 7 p.m. to midnight.
“It is a time of joy and community coming together. Religiously, the significance is that a Hindu god was returning home and people were rejoicing,” Priyashi Shah, a board member for ISA said.
There is no charge for SMU students as long as you bring your Connect Event Pass and non-SMU students can purchase a ticket for $7. There will be numerous live performances from SMU ranging from traditional Indian dances to stand-up comedy. Students can also enjoy a complementary dinner, free henna art and dancing.
“For those of you who have never been to Diwali, it’s unlike any event that you’ve seen at SMU,” President Kerman Ahluwalia said.
