Chand Raat, Night of the Moon Party by Cornell Pakistani Students’ Association at Carl Becker House, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY

Last week I had opportunity to take part in a great celebration of Chand Raat (Night of the Moon)  commemorating the end of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. The Pakistani Students’ Association of Cornell prepared delicious snacks and a great program. There was a  guitar duo, an a capella group, henna hand painting and a fabulous Bhangra dance group.

Here are my pictures from this event:
