Festival of Lights
The most important festival in the Hindu calendar, Deepavali, or the Festival of Lights, is a time for renewal and rejoicing as Hindus celebrate the triumph of good over evil. Homes light little clay lamps filled with oil to bring in light, and good fortune, during this happy occasion. This year, Deepavali falls on 5 November 2010.
The festive celebrations in Little India start on 23 September 2010. Kick off the festivities amid the elaborate lights, streamers and lively cultural performances happening all over.
As Deepavali draws nearer, join the crowds as they throng through Little India for festive goodies and decorations. Campbell Lane, near Mustafa Centre, a 24-hour shopping haven, is slated to house a Festival Village that includes a colourful festive bazaar offering everything from saris to spices. Intricate Indian crafts fashioned and peddled by traditional craftsmen from India will also be showcased. You can also sample traditional Indian snacks including Murukku, a flour-based snack made with Indian, or popular Indian sweets such as the Halwa, a flour or nut butter-based dessert.
Utsav Deeepavali Street Parade held along Race Course Road in October is one of the biggest arts events in Little India as Indian performance art forms feature alongside cultural performances by various ethnic groups. You can also experience a spectacular open air Deepavali Countdown concert on the eve of the festival. Join local and international celebrities in this extravaganza that will surely dazzle you.
well and good
