Diwali, the Festival of Lights, was celebrated at Dunedin Public Library on Friday 2ndNov. by the Indian community of Dunedin.

There were activities for adults and children, which included Mehndi, henna painting on hands, Bindi, face art, and Rangoli, floor decorations.

Kalanjali, a tribal folk dance troup, from Andhra Pradesh southern India, came to entertain us. With dazzling rhythm, beautiful colourful costumes, they were a true delight to watch.
