The event is open to the public. Tickets are $7 and will be sold from noon - 2 p.m. Nov. 15-19 in the SUB. The MSU ISA Diwali celebration is a popular community event and in previous years the event has sold out in advance.
Diwali, which is a significant festival in Hinduism, Sikhism and Jainism, is celebrated on the first day of the lunar Kartika month. Tradition holds that the lights represent the victory of good over evil, and as the last harvest of the year is finished, prayers for a good year ahead are made.
India Night '10 is sponsored by the Indian Student Association, MSU Diversity Awareness Office, MSU Office of International Programs and the MSU Office of Student Activities.
