Residents of Defence Officers Apartments, a residential society in Sector 4, Dwarka, organised a Diwali mela (fair) on Saturday. Children and adults both participated in the various attractions set up at the venue. Here are a few pictures from the event.
RETAIL THERAPY: Stalls set up by residents as well as several social organisations had items ranging from home decor, art and craft, clothes and cosmetics to food. With so much on offer, residents thronged the stalls for some retail therapy.
GAMES GALORE: Children play a "game of luck" at one of the stalls. There was no dearth of attractions for kids who wanted to have some fun. While some were busy aiming at the hoopla stall, others enjoyed themselves playing darts.
TASTE OF VICTORY: Winners of the diya-decoration competition pose for a photo at the event. Clay art and toy-making workshops also gave kids a chance to tap into their creative side.
FIELD OF FORTUNE: Residents, especially the elderly, participated in a game of Tambola at the venue. Music was also on the menu, as guitar players and those who enjoyed dancing let their hair down at the Diwali mela.
YOUNG SCULPTORS: Children showed keen interest in one of the stalls on clay art. This workshop had several takers. Here, a boy asks an instructor at the workshop to write his name on a clay toy.
THE VENUE: The Diwali mela was well lit, with colourful lights that were used to decorate and highlight the entrance. Moreover, as seen in the picture, the area where the stalls were set up had ample lighting. Kept at the right side of the entrance is City Spidey's poster, which sponsored the prizes of the diya-decoration competition for children.
