Indian students at the university celebrated Diwali with students from Taiwan, Bangladesh, Switzerland, the United States, Indonesia, Thailand, Pakistan and other countries. In addition to exciting dance performances, the event featured cultural activities like henna (body painting) and traditional Indian costumes.

Diwali is known as the Hindu festival of light, and is one of India’s largest and most important celebrations, a five-day festivity that falls between mid-October and mid-November on the Gregorian calendar. The festival is also celebrated by Jains and Sikhs, spiritually signifying the victory of light over darkness, good over evil. It is a celebration of the inner light, and some Buddhists also celebrate this festival. (Source:

In past years, Indian students at TMU typically gathered over dinner or joined the celebrations held by Academia Sinica. Last year was the first time TMU students organized a Diwali celebration open to all, and the series of celebratory activities not only helped international students feel less homesick, but also allowed students from Taiwan and other countries to join in the fun. Over two hundred people participated in these activities, and students and faculty enjoyed a memorable evening experiencing Indian culture.
