Diwali symbolises the spiritual victory of light over darkness, good over evil and knowledge over ignorance. To celebrate with family and friends, Vihari and Abhishek Poddar threw a Diwali Disco at the Singapore Swimming Club ballroom, complete with snake charmer, fortune teller, tarot-card reader, henna painting, dancers, deejay and a sumptuous vegetarian buffet spread.

The annual affair, back for the third edition this year, drew 150 guests, who were encouraged to dress in multi-cultural outfits. After getting their photos taken at the photo wall, the ladies selected their choice of bindi to wear and were gifted a coveted feathered ring.

Kids danced as soon as the music started; adult guests were also encouraged to hit the dance floor. Click on the photos below to see who was in attendance.
