LISHA Diwali light up
DEEPAVALI LIGHT-UP AT LITTLE INDIA
Diwali was celebrated this year on the 14th November. Though this was in midst of the pandemic, Little India in Singapore was busy preparing itself for the celebrations.
On 4th October 2020, Dr T. Chandroo, Chairman of the Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SICCI) participated in the Deepavali Light-up ceremony together with DPM Heng Swee Keat, Mr R. Dhinakaran, Vice-Chairman of Hindu Endowment Board, Mr Rajakumar Chandra Chairman of LiSHA and Mr C. Sankaranathan, Vice Chairman of LiSHA.
Little India Shopkeepers & Heritage Association (LiSHA) and the festival partners hoped to mark this occasion as a joyful year, especially during these challenging times.
Deepavali celebrates the triumph of light over darkness, and good over evil. In the midst of the crisis, the decorative light up serves as a beacon of hope as we embark on the road to recovery from the pandemic. Although LiSHA had scaled down the celebrations this year due to the virus, the festive spirit remains bright.
