Exquisite finery, nimble feet, a sumptuous spread and breathtaking views of the Chicago skyline marked the South Asia Business Group's (SABG) annual Diwali cruise on Oct. 18. For the uninitiated, Diwali is an Indian festival of lights that celebrates the victory of good over evil. It sees the entire country lit up by "diyas" or traditional clay lamps and glittering skies brought to life by fireworks. The SABG extravaganza atop the Mystic Blue cruise boat lived up to the hype and more as over 200 Booth students danced the night away to popular Bollywood music and enjoyed a delicious Indian spread.
