UTC Celebrates the festival of lights

Oil Lamps and candles were lit in the darkness filled mess hall (lights switch off)to create the right ambiance, and to show our solidarity with our Hindu brethren who are celebrating Diwali. The "Diwali candle light dinner" in UTC ended with a special sweet prepared for the occasion. Small group of hostelers were also seen enjoying lighting of crackers whereas others took pleasure in watching them.The sound of crackers accompanied us till midnight and continously kept us connected with the festive mood outside. the loud sound (which otherwise irritates the ears ) and the flashing of lights in the sky was pleasant just because it was Diwali "The Festival of Light".

Its pains to read in the newspapers that this festival of Light has also turned out to be a day of darkness and agony for some due to mishandling of crackers.

We the YMCA Trainees wish all a very happy and safe Diwali.
