Nearly 200 guests came together at The Ritz-Carlton, Atlanta
in November for Diwali Gala, an event hosted by the hotel to honor the city’s Indian and South Asian community. Attendees danced among stunning décor by Weddings InStyle and IndaGlow Productions, watched a performance from a fire dancer, imbibed cocktails like the Pomegranate Lassi, and dined on authentic dishes such as Tikki Chole, Papdi Chaat cones and Pani Puri Shooters crafted by the hotel’s Executive Chef, Ramesh Kaduru, who joined the team in March 2015. (The chef is happy to accommodate Indian-inspired menus for any conference or meeting, too.) Here are seven snapshots from the India-inspired event.
