There was plenty of dancing, music and traditional Indian food as hundreds from around the area celebrated Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Lights, on Saturday night. Held at the Johns Hopkins University's Ralph S. O'Connor Recreation Center, the free event was sponsored by the JHU Hindu Students Council. In different regions of India, the festival, which is held for five consecutive days, has varying origins. However, it generally signifies the beginning of the new year.
