We held our first ever Chapter Diwali Dhamaka celebration that was organized entirely by 6 IITB spouses and 2 young IITB alumna. The sold out event was attended by almost 110 alums and their families and friends. The mood was festive, the music was rocking aided by a lively DJ and to top it off our very own Sankumani Sarma IITB-1990 wowed the audience with a masterful Gazal performance aided by a top notch tabla player and a Benjo artist.
We had over 20 children ( ages 2 through 18) attending the function without getting bored as our able and talented organizers kept them entertained with games and scavenger hunt. Our popular Bingo game was enjoyed by all with the lucky winners bagging over 105 dollars in prize money. The IIT junta was regaled by some great jokes from our very own Subodh Batra IITB-1972.
After partaking of delicious appetizers and a fabulous buffet dinner, the crowd was on their feet rollicking to beat music, free form dancing and Dandiya. A professional photographer took portraits of interested families and friends.
A small token gift was given to our Event Organizers
Mita Patel, Sonurita Parmar, Vrinda Master, Sunaina Singh, Mala Ganapathy and Bindu Krishna (all spouses of IITB alums) and our dynamic young IITB alumna duo of Shweta Bhandari and Suhani Shorewala.
The success of this event has been an outpouring of support to have all our future social functions like this one, picnics and Holi be organized by our dedicated team of alumni spouses and alumna.
