Diwali is a time of year when people come together and share the joy in their
lives. They put aside their differences and work towards fostering a sense of
community in all around them. On Saturday 14th October the youngsters of Shree
Swaminaryan Temple London took part in the London
Borough of Brent Diwali Festivities, and took a sample of our culture to the
community at large.
In the morning, the Temple's world reknown pipe band - Shree Muktajeevan Pipe
Band - and a group of young girls of Shree
Muktajeevan Arts & Culture Academy who had prepared a series of traditional Indian
dances, took part in the Brent Cross Diwali Mela. Their performances brought
smiles to the faces of the crowds of shoppers, and showcased the fusion of
traditional and cotemporary talent the temple has developed.
Later in the day, Shree Muktajeevan Pipe Band took part in a special Diwali
parade that started from the Alperton Tube Station, along Ealing Road, and wound its way through
the crowd filled streets of Brent to Barham Park, Wembley. The band
entire distance playing traditional Scottish bagpipe tunes, Indian melodies,
bhajans, and original tunes composed by band members.
