South Brunswick has a sizeable Hindu community that celebrates various festivals, like Navratri, Diwali and Karva Chauth, in October. The nine days of Navratri (nine nights) honor the divine feminine. In the Eastern parts of India, this time is celebrated as Durga Puja, honoring the victory of Goddess Durga over evil. Diwali or the "festival of lights" will be celebrated on Oct.
