India is a diverse country, 

incredibly rich in culture and heritage, 

a unique and special place, cradle of Hinduism and a whole melting pot of religions, land of infinite gastronomy and extremes in every way,… 

a country that surprises and leaves no one indifferent. 

Saris and turbans of all colours, lakes, rivers and temples, Bollywood stars draw a multicoloured landscape: India is the country of contrasts. 

At IES CANTILLANA in a virtual way and with the help of our language assistant, Sehar Dawar, we enter this Asian country and we will take this opportunity to immerse ourselves in the culture and treasures of India.

We have published a magazine with all the activities that ANL teachers and the language assistant have prepared for the students.

Our language assistant Sehar, from India, told us about DIWALI in class. It is a festival which is
being celebrated these days.

DIWALI is a Hindu holiday which symbolizes the spiritual victory of light over darkness,
good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. Diwali is mostly celebrated in India, but pepople in other parts of the world also celebrate it.

DIWALI means “Row of Lights”, people light up small lamps called diyas and decorate their houses with wonderful designs called Rangoli.

DIWALI lasts 5 days and this year it is celebrated on November, 14th.

Sehar has made a beatiful and colourful Rangoli in our school.

Nuestra auxiliar Sehar, de India, nos ha estado hablando en clase sobre el DIWALI que se está celebrando estos días.

DIWALI es una fiesta hindú que simboliza la victoria de la luz sobre la oscuridad, del bien sobre el mal y del conocimiento sobre la ignorancia. Aunque se celebra especialmente, en la India, en otras partes del mundo también se celebra.

 DIWALI es el Festival de las Luces en el que la gente enciende pequeñas lámparas de aceite denominadas diyas y decora sus casas con maravillosos diseños denominados Rangoli.

DIWALI se celebra este año el 14 de noviembre y se extiende durante 5 días.

Sehar ha realizado un bonito y colorido Rangoli en el instituto.
