CHICAGO: Gandhi Samaj of Chicago (GSC) hosted its 35th Annual Diwali Program November 2 at Ashton Place, Willow Brook, a south side suburb of Chicago. Over 120 families from Chicago and its close vicinity attended this nearly four-hours program.
The event started with social hour accompanied by a traditional Gujarati dinner followed by a cultural program.

The objectives of GSC, said its president Hitesh Gandhi, are to achieve and promote unity amongst members while helping the community to enhance cultural awareness via educational programs and through celebration of festivals such as Diwali and Navratri.
