In this segment of Centric Commemorates, a few of our colleagues speak to the importance of Diwali in their lives.
Part of our Centric Commemorates series.
Diwali, a Sanskrit term meaning “a row of lights,” is one of the major religious holidays observed by people of Hindu, Jain, Sikh and Buddhist faiths.
Taking place over five days, it celebrates the spiritual triumph of light over darkness. In the first week of November, colleagues in Centric India and across the US will join with family, friends and neighbors to honor this festival of lights, culminating on Diwali night on November 4.
As Centric celebrates Diwali 2021, we’re bringing even more creativity and engagement to this Centric Commemorates piece. Rather than a written blog, we are featuring a video dialogue between our very own, Soumya and Piyush Aggarwal in Centric India and Nishant Awasthi in Chicago. Shan Mukhtar, our DEI Lead, interviewed Soumya, Piyush, and Nishant to learn their perspectives and experiences about the significance of Diwali and the traditions that make it such a special holiday.
Want to hear even more Diwali stories? Check out the video below from Ruchika Gupta in Centric India.
Through these stories, we’ll seek to learn, understand, and empathize. We’ll celebrate our differences and realize that though we have varied backgrounds and perspectives, we are one team.
