May the lights of Diwali fill your home with happiness, and may the coming year provide you with everything that brings you joy! - MA State Senator Karen E. Spilka.


As part of Indian Americans for Burlington Diwali lighting in the Burlington Common, MA, Senator Friedman remarked, “Celebrating diversity in our community and encouraging our neighbors to learn more about and recognize the value of other cultures is incredibly important. When we come together as a community as we are today to celebrate Diwali, we take an important step toward facilitating a more welcoming environment for all.” Friedman continued, “Today is a day to celebrate new beginnings as well as life’s blessing. It’s a day for quiet prayer and reflection, to evaluate our common commitment to help our fellow
neighbors, especially those who are in need or less fortunate.”

Roaring Reds And Serene Oranges


by Tara Anand
Aldous Huxley said, I quote, "After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music". A full house at the Chinmaya auditorium soaked in the wonder of just that... Sanjay Subramanyam expressing what the rest of us find humanly inexpressible... On the second day of the double header, there was an instrumental treat in store, a violin duet by Lalgudi G.J.R. Krishnan, and Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi, accompanied by none other than the inimitable Vidwan Trichy Sankaran on the mridangam and Tripunittura Radhakrishnan on the ghatam.
