Melbourne gets ‘Sushant’s Point’ – a memorial for Sushant
While COVID-19 has badly affected many social activities since the start of the year, the spirit of Celebrate India Inc. team was not going to be daunted by the restrictions in place, no matter what.
Led by the indefatigable Mr Arun Sharma and Mrs Jaya Sharma, the team started planning ahead of the easing of restrictions and decided to go digital with this year’s Fed Square Diwali 2020. And the program to be broadcast live from the main stage at Fed Square not only has got all the ingredients to spice up your celebrations, it is surprising giveaways for many competition and Cooking Master Class participants.
Fruit and Vegetable Rangoli
A Massive Rangoli to be constructed second time with vegetables and fruits on 31st Oct, by Jaya and team. It was the talk of the town and delight to the photographers the first time round. What a novel, brilliant idea to promote health during festivities with this unique element added to the Fed Square Diwali.
Cooking Master Class and 2 Months Grocery Giveaways
Cooking Master class will be held on 3rd November. Organizers are asking international students to register, so first 125 students will receive Diwali Gift Packs which will have enough groceries for 2 months.

The team of Celebrate Indian Inc. have arranged to donate over 85 trees, plants and a seat to Werribee Mansion, Parks Vic, in honour of SSR, a conservationist. That will be called SUSHANT”s POINT.
“On 14 June this year, we tragically lost a bright, young and extremely actor Sushant who touched our hearts. He was a conservationist and now his memory will have a ‘home’ in Melbourne”, Mr Sharma proudly added.
This year’s Diwali was going to be 15th Fed Square Diwali by the untiring team and although they have had to re-calibrate their plans and program to celebrate the milestone, providing a permanent place to the loving memory of Sushant Singh Rajput in Melbourne’s historic Werribee Park, housing the famous Werribee Mansion built in 1877, equals a whole lot of milestones achieved on the way.
