Chairman Vasudev Tumbe of the Indian Chamber of Commerce in Korea (ICCK) hosted India's one of the most important cultural events "ICCK Diwali Ball 2018" in Seoul in the evening of Nov. 9 (Friday), 2018.

The delightful and colorful "black-tie" dinner event drew hundreds of both local Korean and foreign guests including Indian nationals.

Diwali, or the Indian Festival of Lights, is a joyous festival celebrating the triumph of good over evil for the Hindi people in the world. The Hindi folks welcome peace and prosperity by illuminating their homes with traditional Diya lamps.

The autumnal Hindu festival of Diwali is one of the India's biggest festivals. Diwali means rows of lighted lamps. During this festival, people light up their houses and shops with a Diya, a small cup-shaped oil lamp, and the Lord Ganesha worshipped for good welfare and prosperity.
