A day full of lights and colours



By Debadrita Ghosh

Diwali, the festival of lights, is one of the most recognised and celebrated festivals in India. It symbolises the triumph of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, and good over evil.

So, when the festival of lights is knocking at the door, who doesn’t like to celebrate it with great fun and enjoyment? A grand pre-Diwali celebration was held at the Apeejay Institute of Mass Communication (AIMC), Dwarka campus. The event featured various cultural programmes performed by the students on stage, followed by an open dance floor and some delectable food. The beautiful rangolis lined up with diyas also illuminated every corner of the institution. The lights, lamps, and diyas, signifying the triumph of light over darkness, reminded everyone of the values and principles that Diwali stands for.

All the students and faculty members looked vibrant in their traditional outfits, adding to the cultural appreciation within the college community. The students showcased their artistic skills by designing colourful rangolis at the auditorium entrance. They also participated in various activities such as dance, music, games, and quizzes to mark the auspicious occasion of Diwali.

Each student built a buzz on stage by showcasing their hidden talents and creativity in their respective performances. The faculty members also encouraged the students to take part in the festivity, reflecting a sense of unity and support. The main highlight of the event was the ‘open dance floor’ where all the students grooved to each Bollywood song playlist, filling the entire atmosphere with exuberance and ecstasy.

Perhaps the pre-Diwali celebration at AIMC was not just an event; it was also a reflection of maintaining the legacy and rich cultural diversity within the college community. In this event, students from diverse cultures came together to foster a sense of love, harmony, understanding, and togetherness. Thus, the college campus was transformed into a radiant space with an overwhelming spirit of festivity, where the students and professors celebrated light and knowledge.

Being a part of the Apeejay family, I felt very grateful to witness the large-scale pre-Diwali bash, which was like a moment of euphoria. As we are all aware of the famous saying that ‘days may pass, but memories last forever,’ I am sure this memorable event will hold a special place in every student’s heart.
