Diwali Party - 2004

Last Sunday, on the 14th of November, we had organized a Diwali Party. This was a Potluck Diwali Party and there was a significant number of people invited. Hence, we decided to host the party at our Aparment Complex's Card and Clipper room. These rooms were well furnished with sofas, couches, tables, chairs, TV, fridge, Oven, a Bar and even a piano for the musically inclined.
The dress code for the party was traditional Indian attire and so, it was promising to be fun.

Although the party was supposed to start at 4:00 pm, people started showing up (excepting Sujata, Roopam and Surelia, who had come over early to help in the preparations) around 6:00 pm and by 6:45 pm, the rooms were full of people. It was great meeting so many people and more importantly, seeing some of my always_jeans_clad friends dressed in traditional Indian clothes. It was indeed quite a sight.

We had organized prizes for the best dressed male (Shyam Mundhra) and best dressed female (Ritika - the outright winner). We played Bingo, had a fashion parade for males and females. One quick word about the food though. This time the bachelors were thrust a lot of cooking responsibilities and they came out with flying colors ! - Kudos to them.

Once the party ended in the Card/Clipper Rooms, the scene shifted to our Apartment. We played Passing the Parcel (Sujata was the winner) and then had some wonderful tea made by Shyam Mundhra. In the end, it was time to call it a day and we were left with some wonderful moments to cherish. You can enjoy some of those moments here.

Till then !
