Celebrations of festivals not only strengthens bonding between family and friends but also act as powerful means to understand our rich culture and synergy that one should have with society.

Diwali, the festival of lights, love and joy was celebrated with unquenchable enthusiasm and exuberance on 24th Oct 2019. The festive celebrations began with soulful prayer song invoking the blessings of Lord Ganesh followed by power-packed performances by teachers and students of NHG.

Lamps were lit by Ms.Sargam Manghnani, Director, NHG, Principal, Co-ordinators and students of grade 10 to symbolically mark the victory over darkness of ignorance and lethargy paving a way to ascend to an illumined arena of purity, wisdom and knowledge. It resonated with essence of Upanishad prayer,            “Tamasomaa jyotir gamaya” (lead me from darkness to light).

Along with beautiful traditional folk dance of Punjab which was performed by teachers and students of NHG, semiclassical dances and lyrical contemporary performances by students of New Horizon PU college & New Horizon College of Management enthralled the audience.
