Diwali at Number 10

Diwali at Number 10

Every year, the British Prime Minister hosts a special Diwali event in his official residence of 10 Downing Street. This year the event fell on Wednesday 6th November and it carried with it an extra special charm: As part of the proceedings, children from the Krishna Avanti and Avanti Schools sang a number of traditional songs glorifying Lord Rama.

The schools displayed their excellent musical skills.

Like last year, just before David Cameron’s keynote address, Srutidharma das recited the Sanskrit prayers. Both the prayers and the speech went down well.

We found a YouTube link which shows the children singing at Number 10. You can view it here:
