“The idea behind this year is to really delve into how the path down destruction is really paved by a group of people with strong ideas between what’s right and wrong,” says Sahasra Sambamoorthi.
“It ends up being extremely relevant to the world we live in now...and we really want people to relate to these epics beyond watching them from a historical or cultural standpoint,” says Samyukta Ranganathan.
Co-founder Sridhar Shanmugam adds, “It’s important for us as an immigrant community to also try to share our culture in this way during a holiday everyone knows and associates with India - Diwali.”
