Diwali on the Square

Tuesday 14th October 2014 13:08 EDT

The overcast skies and continuous rainfall could not dampen the spirit of people celebrating Diwali in Trafalgar Square on Sunday 12th October. Organised by the Mayor of London, the party began with a procession from the South Bank where local children dressed up as Lord Rama, Sita and Lakshmana, and their army of devoted monkeys and made their way down to Trafalgar Square. From garba to classical dances, the afternoon filled with music in the air.There was also a fashion show and free mehndi designs from the office Guinness Book Of Records world’s fastest henna artist, Pavan Ahluwalia.
