Description of some of the events offered:
Kavi Darbar - is the name given to an event or gathering where poets ("Kavi") assemble to engage in recitation of their poetry. Guru Gobind Singh, the tenth Sikh Guru is famous for his love of poetry. Every month on a full moon night, he used to arrange such a "gathering of poets" near the Gurdwara Paonta Sahib in Himachal Pradesh state, India. The place where he arranged these gathering is also called "Kavi Darbar". It is an open air location adjacent of the River Yamuna.
Vaisakhi - is a Punjabi harvest festival for people of the Punjab region. This day is observed as a thanksgiving day by farmers whereby farmers pay their tribute, thanking God for the abundant harvest and also praying for future prosperity. Vaisakhi is also the Punjabi New Year and is celebrated throughout the Punjab region. Hindus use the Punjabi calendar as their religious calendar too. Fairs are organised on Vaisakhi day in Punjabi villages and the ICCA recognizes this event in Victoria by hosting a Vaisakhi Mela for the community to enjoy.
Diwali - is the Hindu festival of lights celebrated yearly. It is an official holiday in many countries. Diwali signifies the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance and hope over despair. Its celebration includes millions of lights shining on roof tops, outside doors and windows and around buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed. Millions of candles are lit and fireworks light up the night sky. Diwali coincides with the darkest moon night of the Hindu “Lunisolar” month typically between mid-October and mid-November.
