The Selandra Rise Shopping Centre in Clyde North celebrated two successful years of trading with an Indian cultural festival on Saturday 17 June.
The event celebrated the shopping centre’s opening in 2015 with many traditional and modern parts of Indian culture taking centre stage.
The shopping centre hosted the president of the Australia India Business Council Rashi Kapoor as well as Prince Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar of the royal house of Mewar in Udaipur, Rajasthan.
Along with the esteemed guests, visitors to the centre were treated to raffles, dances and songs, and many other festivities.
There was traditional Bharatanatyam dance, modern Bollywood dancing, and an energetic Bangda (Punjabi) dance to finish off the day.
Star News Photographer Rob Carew went along to the gala function to capture the colour and energy of this cultural display.
