Lantern making & Diya decoration

Diwali – the festival of fun, happiness and lights. What better way to begin our Fun Week than to start with making “Akash Kandil” or paper lanterns. Magical is the word that comes to mind, when we watched each team put together ordinary looking stuff to create attractive gorgeous lanterns of various shapes and sizes.
Diwali is also a contraction of Deepavali which translates into “row of lamps” or “diyaas. The lighting of small clay lamps filled with oil to signify the triumph of good over evil. Nimble fingers worked enthusiastically to transform plain looking clay lamps into beautiful Deepavali diyaas.
