Indian Holidays in November

Diwali festival

Diwali is a Hindu festival for the goddess of luck, Lakshmi, and the victory of good over evil. The festival takes place in November, at the end of the rainy season, and lasts for five days.

Traditionally, people in India light small oil lamps, called dipas, and float them on rivers. This is how the festival got its name Diwali, which means sea of lights.

During the celebration, people play music, dance, and share traditional food. In addition, many stories about Hindu gods are told and gifts and sweets are distributed.

Guru Nanak Jayanti

Guru Nanak Jayanti is the celebration of the birthday of Guru Nanak, who was the first Guru of the Sikhism religion. It is a holiday of Sikhism and a bank holiday in India.

Five Facts about India

There are more than 1000 languages in India

As many of the spoken languages merge, the exact number can only be estimated. Hindi, Bengali, Tamil, Marathi, Telugu and Urdu are the most spoken languages in India.

Three of the Top Ten megacities are located in India

According to the UN, Delhi, Mumbai, and Calcutta are part of the ten largest urban agglomerations in the world. Delhi is even expected to become the most populated city in the world by 2030.

Religious diversity is an important characteristic of the Indian society

A large part of the population belongs to the hindu religion. Moreover, Islam, Christianity, Sikhism, Buddhism, and Jainism are the largest religious groups in India.

Bollywood is the world´s largest film industry

About 1000 Bollywood movies are produced every year. These films are often called `masala films´. Masala means `spices´ in Hindu and refers to the strong emotions, action-packed stories and colorful costumes that are typical for Bollywood films.


In India, cricket is by far the most popular sport. Its national team belongs to the most successful teams worldwide and the top players are highly regarded in the society.

Review: German Cooking Night

On Monday, 25 Oktober, our first Culture Night, the German Cookong Night, took place. The LEI-Team (many thanks at this point) organized a virtual get-together where the participants cooked an easy German dish together via livestream on BigBlueButton. It was a fun evening and everybody enjoyed spending some time together and of course the delicious meal.
