Diwali Festival Celebrated in Moscow

As from now, the Indian festival of lights – Diwali is celebrated not only in India. On the October 18 it was held in Moscow and gathered hundreds of expatriate Indians and many Russians interested in Indian culture.

The festival was held at the concert hall of the Oil and Gas University on Leninsky Prospekt, which was decorated in an Indian way with colored garlands. The hall was packed out with Indians in traditional dress. There was a vast fair with all kinds of Indian goods, clothes, spices, decorations and other merchandise. Indian food and drinks were available. The show continued into the evening with a concert featuring oriental dance performances and a concert by Indian pop singer Gloria Deli. The party concluded with fireworks and the ignition of traditional Indian lamps.

Sponsors of the event included Imperial Tailoring, Swissotel, Cosmo Travels and many others.
