Finally… I am back to slightly normal life
Really delicious food, fabulous company, integration of cultures and great dancing is how I would describe the Diwali dinner hosted by the India MBA Association. Even before the event took place it was evident the success it was going to have. Tickets sold out immediately and in the restaurant there was barely any free space to sit down. The hosts of the event were amazing. They not only gave a warm welcome to all the guests, they also dressed up with traditional clothing, they made sure that everybody was enjoying the food and finally they made us burn some calories by dancing according to the very energizing Indian music. My favorite dancers of the night were definitely Ashish K, Tanvy N, and Basesh G. Very impressive movements and great entertainment through the night!!
These types of events certainly define what Fisher is about. Diversity, great people, sharing and learning of different cultures, hard work and fun. These are the moments that promote integration and friendship in the program, and these are the things that will definitely stay in my memories throughout the years. The smiles and laughs at some very exotic dancing put everybody in a good mood after a busy week. The crowd was very boisterous and made for a great night as staff and students mingled alike and created a din of chatter despite the lovely food which people ate like there was no tomorrow.
Thanks to the Indian association for the fantastic event and wonderful time I spend at Diwali. Please keep organizing more of these events, I am pretty sure all of them will be a complete success just as the Diwali was. Its success was indicated in the sellout of tickets and people discussing the fact they will be back next year already, sounds like a good business model!
