One for the road

A party with a difference! The pre-Holi bash thrown by Prince Singhal at the poolside courtyard of the Tivoli Garden Resorts was an attempt to discourage drunken driving. And had the likes of actor Aftab Shivdasani flying down specially to support the cause!

Prince had started an NGO called, Say Mocktails, a year ago after the Jessica Lal murder. And he has been organising events to drive home the necessity of driving without having alcohol. Meanwhile, Aftab spoke to the guests present and signed on the bottle — a tradition followed by all!

As guests walked in, they penned down their comments first on the register and then on the graffiti in the foyer. Each person was supposed to bring along a teetotaller who would drive on the way back. People were also given badges which read: I am a designated Driver, I Support Designated Driver Concept and I’m part of the Mocktail movement!

As the evening warmed up, guests took to the floor dancing to the live band. Present at the do were a host of Delhi’s who’s who — actor Abhinav Chaturvedi, newsreader Suneet Tandon, painter Subroto Kundu, supercop Maxwell Pereira, fashion designer Jattin Kochchar, filmmaker Muzaffar Ali’s son Murad Ali and many others....

There was also a live thematic performance by country singer Bobby Cash and a display of the more than one lakh signatures collected by the group as part of their signature campaign. A sumptuous spread of Indian and Chinese food completed the evening.
