Digicel Guyana on board GHDS’s Deepavali Motorcade

– sponsors Golden Om Dharmic Youth Arm

Digicel Guyana is once again on board the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Shaba’s annual Deepavali Motorcade, which is set for Sunday, October 23, 2022. The event returns after a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This spectacle has been an important part of Guyanese Culture for years. People from all walks of life flock the seawalls to get a glimpse of the well-decorated floats that would travel up the East Coast Highway from the Shri Krishna Mandir in Campbellville, Georgetown, to participate in the grand event at the LBI Community Centre Ground. Digicel has been a proud and longtime supporter of this GHDS event, and the telephone giant is again happy to see the annual event return.
However, in addition to its sponsorship for the grand event, Digicel Guyana would also be sponsoring the Golden Om Dharmic Float.


This year’s motorcade would feature the worship practised in several parts of India, including North India, South India, and Bengal/Calcutta.
In Hinduism, Gods and Goddesses are depicted differently in each type of worship. As such, to educate the public about the various forms, Golden Om has decided to venture into incorporating these forms into the motorcade.
The main view this year will be one of South Indian forms of the Gods and Goddesses. The design depicts the South Indian form of Lord Vishnu, known as Venkatswara; and Maha Latchmi, who is known as Bhumi Devi or Sri Devi.
The float will see Maha Latchmi, Goddess of light, wealth, and prosperity, in her full glory seated in a lotus flower. This float is to be one with a garden-like scenery.
The front of the truck would be converted to a chariot scene, with two elephants attached and appearing to be carrying the entire float. There are several other features that are ready to be let out of the bag.
