Celebrate Diwali Masala Style this Weekend

Masala 1in

By Sugandha Malhotra

SUGAR LAND: It’s that time of the year when families get together, friends exchange gifts, diyas and rangolis adorn our homes and aroma of good food fills our kitchens.

It’s Diwali, signifying the victory of light over darkness. The end of all troubles and the beginning of an auspicious year. The triumph of good over evil and the anticipation of a better future, lights a hope in our mind and that’s exactly what Diwali is all about.

Celebrating the same hope and triumph, Masala Radio’s Sunil and Sandhya Thakkar and the crazy Masala crew, along with Grand Sponsors &TV and Tara Energy bring together Houston Diwali: Festival of Lights 2015 on Saturday, October 24, between 5pm to 11pm at the Skeeters Stadium. Rain Date is set to Sunday October 25, from 4PM-10PM.  Masala Radio will be making radio announcements and posts to HoustonDiwali.com, facebook/Houston Diwali and Masala Radio updating about possible switch to the Rain Date on Sunday.
