We are grateful to our valued client, Ireland India Council for their invitation to celebrate Diwali at City Hall last Friday night. Diwali is the Hindu celebration of the triumph of light over dark, and it is celebrated with light and colour and much festivity. We enjoyed cultural presentations, an Indian fashion show, classical dancing, singing, music and a delicious vegetarian meal. We were awed to watch the lady in the picture above dancing while balancing a jar of water and a candle on her head!
Ireland India Council works to build and develop relationships among the Irish and Indian communities, including business leaders, social leaders and universities. It organises many networking events and cultural exchanges so as to lay the groundwork for future cooperation.
