She believes in God, She believes in fasting, She believes in herself! She announced the celebration of Maha Shiv Ratri...it was not a community event but it was in the community! 
When one can announce "I am making a film", then why one can't announce "I am celebrating". We live in the community, we also live as an individual within the community with our individual needs.  She didn't need all to join, she alone was enough to start the journey. We experienced fasting, puja, night waking, music, devotion in Maha Shiv Ratri thorough her.
Thank you, for creating this unique festivity at the campus!
