An iconic symbol of the New York City, the Empire State Building erases boundaries and strengthened the bonds of oneness and brotherhood by celebrating Diwali in their own special way. The Empire State Realty Trust and the Federation of the Indian Association together pulled off a feat that won many hearts, especially those of the Indian American community. To honour the festival of lights, Diwali, the top of the Empire State Building was lit up in orange lights.
Earlier, the building used to be bathed in tri-colour lights every August to celebrate India’s Independence Day, but, celebrating Diwali in this way is definitely a great surprise. Jay Sean, the young popular Indian singer and Miss America 2014 Nina Devuluri together pulled the lever that showered the building in a warm orange glow. The official Twitter handle of The Empire State Building was full of pictures of the event with the caption “In celebration of Diwali, our lights will shine orange tonight.”
