On Sunday, October 27, 2013, the Harvard India Student Group (HISG), in partnership with BU-Hindu Yuva, brought together students from Harvard, Boston University and University of Massachusetts to volunteer at the Boston Children’s Museum Diwali celebration. The highlight of the day was a performance by the newly founded A capella group Harvard Mirch. Other fun activities included making diyas out of recycled materials, paper lanterns and door hangings, and rangoli. This was a fun and interactive way to educate the children about the cultural significance of Diwali, an important festival in South Asia. The volunteers all found the experience very fulfilling.
