Deepam festival of light

Program by :

Traditionally in Tamil Nadu for centuries, the Deepam Festival of Light is celebrated in the month of Khartikai (end of November or beginning of December, just before the full moon). Its origin is based on a legend of Lord Shiva having transformed himself into a divine flame.
At Deepam they celebrate this festival with more than a thousand of clay lamps filled with oil. At dusk the lamps are lit creating a wonderful, serene atmosphere.
Deepam means light or flame. This symbolic name was chosen to bring light into the lives of children who are challenged with disabilities.
