A Colourful bash: The annual masquerade ball and celebration of the Russian Orthodox Christmas, hosted by ambassador Alexander M Kadakin, was a riot of colours.
The guests turned up in innovative outfits and spent most of their time clicking pictures. Kadakin told us, "The Christmastide dinner and these costumes are all part of our traditions. We, at the embassy, host this event every year, and I am really glad to see that people participate so happily." The event also saw the crowning of the Queen and the King of the ball - Christina and Akshay Sur. The evening ended with a grand display of fireworks.
