The headquarters of Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc), a prominent landmark in the UAE capital, was lit up in different hues to celebrate Diwali, the Indian festival of lights, on Monday evening.
The facade of Adnoc’s headquarters was illuminated in the presence of the Ambassador of India to the UAE, Sunjay Sudhir. Appreciating the gesture, the ambassador tweeted, “You are not only a part of India’s energy security but also its celebration.”
The festival is celebrated in a big way across the emirate with several events spanning two weeks.
From Monday, the day of the festival, until November 6, Yas Island, Abu Dhabi’s premier leisure and entertainment hub, will host a variety of activities that will guarantee memorable experiences for community members. There will be musical performances at the Etihad Arena, ever-popular bhangra dancing and drumming at the Yas Bay Waterfront, great food from famous Indian chefs, a 3D light show and lots of prizes too.
Until October 29, visitors to Yas Bay Waterfront, Abu Dhabi’s vibrant dining and nightlife destination, will be enthralled by festive performances by bhangra dancers and dhol drummers on the boardwalk. There will also be Diwali-themed roaming entertainment. People can experience both activities between 18:00 and 22:00.
