Diwali by Kalyan Kumar on FlickrDiwali, the Indian Festival of Lights, is under way in India. But if you live in Belgium, there will be at least three occasions to celebrate!

In Antwerpen, first, on October 29th, morning.

Then in Leuven, on November 1st evening, organised by the association of Indian students in Leuven.

Finally in Ghent, on November 3rd evening, organised by the Indo-Belgian Association of Ghent.

Edit on November 1st: Bharatiya Samaj is also organising Diwali in Bruxelles on November 8th.

By the way, Rose, a non-profit organisation supporting and fostering basic education for children in developing countries will organise its traditional Fund raising Indian Dinner on November 29th, 2008, in Leuven.

Diwali 2006 @ ISAL

On Saturday, after the Kolam ritual, we went for Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, organized by the ISAL. It was very nice to meet people we already met on previous ISAL “functions” and to talk with them. And I think that ISAL is attracting more and more people, both of Indian origin (working in Belgium, for example) and of non-Indian origin: this time, people from Belgium, China, Poland, Russia, Spain, etc. were there. As usual, I took some photos.
