This year Aspiring Panda got the opportunity to work alongside Harrow Council, Third Sector Potential and other community groups, helping to plan and execute one of the biggest cultural events in the Asian community – Diwali.
On the 14th November 2015, Harrow’s town centre was filled with joy as local community and shoppers came together to celebrate Diwali and Bandhi Chorr Diwas.
Music filled St. Anns centre as spectators watched in awe at the Bollywood dancers, as they swayed on stage in their stunning Indian outfits. Not only was there dancing but a fashion show. Models held lit diyas (a small cup-shaped oil lamp made of baked clay) as they strutted down the catwalk, their gowns twinkling from the light of their lamps. It was an evening filled with much entertainment as people of all races joined together to celebrate the triumph of good over evil and the beginning of a new business year.
Happy Diwali to all from everyone at Aspiring Panda!
