Guria’s Non-Formal Education center in Varanasi celebrated the holiday season and the New Year on Tuesday January 8th. The center shook with dhol music, played from the rooftop of the new building (Kabir House). Everyone that attended the celebration gathered on the rooftop around the drummers for dancing.
The traditional Indian dessert halwa was prepared on the days leading up to the festival and served along with a Christmas cake. All who attended had a great time ringing in the New Year and celebrating the holidays!
