Event Details:

Indians In Korea used a blend of traditional celebrations and family entertainment to celebrate Diwali, the festival of lights, at the University of Suwon’s Balcanto Art Center on Nov 11, 2012. More than 500 people attended the IIK Diwali Dhamaka, including guests from the Indian community in Korea and the wider Korean and foreign community. The Indian Embassy’s Deputy Chief of Mission Jeeva Sagar began the festivities by lighting a traditional lamp. He was joined by his wife Srilata and professor Park Moon-su, dean of academic affairs at the University of Suwon. Angel’s Kindergarten, an Indian preschool in South Korea, started the evening’s stage performances, with a parade of children in fancy dress. This was followed by an Indian dance performance by a Korean troupe from the Indian Cultural Center, Embassy of India. The stage was set alight with performances including a Bharatnatyam-based kids' dance, Bollywood numbers such as "Barso Re Megha" and "Aika Dajiba," kid's Panjabi bhangara, fusion dance, Dandiya-garba and Marathi Lavani dances. The final performance was "Magic of Arabia." Another highlight was the comic-inspired lucky draw ― the host stole the show with his impeccable comic timing, using members of the audience to help him perform his tricks. The night ended with food from Chakraa Indian Restaurant and DJ's playing Bollywood hit's.
