Diwali celebrations were ushered in at a well-attended party following our 4th GBM. Festively attired members complemented the CCI hall, which was beautifully decorated by Vatsala, Ankita, Alka, Jayati and Shivani in true Diwali spirit with colourful rangoli, streamers and dupattas. Fun and games were organised by Zarin, Arti, Alka and Najma with plenty of prizes.

The highlight of the evening was a felicitation of the Club’s seniors for many decades of service and their continuing advice. Everyone quickly joined the special garba performed for them.

After a delicious high tea and an evening of camaraderie, every member left with a lucky dip gift as a memento of a wonderful get-together.
