Diwali, the Indian festival of lights is a celebration of the triumph of good over evil. Diwali is the Indian (desi) equivalent of Thanksgiving and Christmas rolled into one. It is a time when friends and family come together and celebrate.
Here is a quick peek into how San Francisco-based Non Stop Bhangra (NSB) celebrated Diwali. It started with a street mela (procession) complete with a brass band, singing and dancing.
NSB holds a monthly bhangra event in San Francisco.
