Hum Sub Diwali 2022: Everything You Need To Know So Far!

Deepavali (English: /dwli/; Diwali) (IAST: dpval) or Divali (related to Jain Diwali, Bandi Chhor Divas, Tihar, Swanti, Sohrai, and Bandna) is a light festival celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs. The festival is usually held for five days during the Hindu lunisolar month Kartika (between mid-October and mid-November). Diwali, one of Hinduism’s most popular festivals, represents the spiritual “victory of light over darkness, good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance.”

Many regional traditions associate the holiday with Sita and Rama, Vishnu, Krishna, Durga, Shiva, Kali, Hanuman, Kubera, Yama, Yami, Dhanvantari, or Vishvakarman, as well as Lakshmi, the goddess of prosperity, and Ganesha, the god of wisdom and the remover of obstacles. It also commemorates Rama’s return to his kingdom in Ayodhya with his wife Sita and brother Lakshmana after defeating the demon Ravana in Lanka and serving 14 years in exile.

A traditional Indian dance will be performed by Cary Mayor Harold Weinbrecht, Apex Mayor Jacques Gilbert, and Morrisville Mayor TJ Cawley, among others.

“I mean, there’s a famous quote: ‘Dance like no one’s watching,'” Cawley joked. “And that’s how I’m going to think about it.”

Since July, the mayors have been practicing the dance with Cary staff members.

‘Bringing Communities Together

According to Vijay Jagannath, president of the Hum Sub non-profit organization that hosts the event, the name Hum Sub translates to “all of us.”

“It makes no difference who you are; this is for all of us,” he said.

For over 20 years, the organization has been rooted in the Cary community, working to share Indian culture and traditions while also serving as a hub for Indian people in the area.

One of Jagannath’s goals was to spread the Hum Sub-brand throughout Wake County.

“I want to go beyond Cary,” Jagannath stated. “The audience isn’t just Cary. The second point is that this is an Indian festival, but I want everyone to feel welcome regardless of their religious beliefs.”
