Hirsch's Centurion hosts Diwali Morning

Posted last November 14, 2012, 5:06 pm in Events report article

Hirsch's Centurion's ladies got together recently to host an exciting Diwali morning. “We all dressed up in traditional Indian attire and Vasi Ellary from Serenity Wellness Centre in Centurion visited the store and cooked a delicious sweet meat dish called Gulaab Jamun which is an Indian Dougnut. She sent some of the spices used around for everyone to see, taste and smell the aroma whilst telling us more about the different dishes made for Diwali said Hirsch’s Linda Levendag. Vasi also made other sweet treats like soji, jalebi, serve & nuts , not forgetting the traditional chillie bites.

The morning's motivational speaker was Sister Dipty from Brahma Kumaris in Johannesburg, a spiritual University promoting peace and unity. Sister Dipty has become famous for her work as a motivational speaker, doing talks at Government meetings and she has been on Noleen 's TV Talk Show several times. " She enlightened us about what exactly Diwali is about " said Linda. Diwali comes from the ancient term meaning “to bring rolls of light”, sometimes people tend to forget about the things that give their lives meaning and they may end up in a dark place. The Diwali festival’s most important symbolism is new beginnings- let go of the past and start fresh. Diwali is celebrated by throwing fireworks, the bang of the fireworks represent having the courage to blow up things that have imprisoned you in the past and helps you to start afresh. All customers received their own "sparkler," which they thoroughly enjoyed, to light up their life!

" We also had a surprise visitor, Sister Isabel from the Brahma Kumaris in Argentina did a beautiful traditional Indian dance for us, even though she could not speak English all the ladies watched her graceful dancing after which our very own Sash Gajadhar, Sharon Niar and Vanitha Pillay joined in the fun! " said Linda

Alida from She Jewellery, who attended the function did a lovely jewellery display, and donated a beautiful piece of jewellery which Penny Cambell from Pop-up won.
