A More Balanced World Celebrates 2016 Diwali Festival
On Oct. 22, 2016 ‘A More Balanced World’ hosted its 7th annual Diwali, in Canoga Park, California. This was the most successful Diwali celebration yet with over 150 attendees honoring the true meaning of Diwali, the victory of light over darkness, through giving to the cause of education for the underprivileged and providing them with the opportunity to reach their goals and aspirations.
This year’s event was filled with fun, flavorful food, and gleaming performances, from classical songs, sang by Shruthi Bhat, a graduate of Carnatic Classical Music, to Kathak dances performed by our community partner organization Leela Dance Academy.
As the years past, Mandy Fazeli, President of ‘A More Balanced World’, spoke of current status of the organization, its future plans and goals and expressed appreciation to individuals and businesses who have generously donated to the cause of educating the most deserving. The event concluded with DJ music and dancing.
