Taking to X (formerly known as Twitter), Garcetti shared his joy, “Delighted to celebrate #Diwali with dance, food, and music with my colleagues for the first time here in India! At this auspicious time, may the festival of light bring you happiness and prosperity in the new year! शुभ दीपावली!”

Accompanying his tweet was a video capturing the spirited celebration, featuring embassy officials shaking a leg to the rhythm of lively tunes. The joyous atmosphere was infectious, spreading smiles and bridging cultural gaps.

A particularly delightful moment that set social media abuzz was Garcetti himself joining the dance floor. Dressed in a vibrant blue kurta and sporting sunglasses, the ambassador grooved to the beats of the iconic Bollywood song ‘Chhaiya Chhaiya’. The audience erupted in cheers as the diplomat showcased his dance moves, embodying the spirit of Diwali.

The revelry at the US embassy seemed to have started well in advance. A video posted last month depicted a group of American women, adorned in colorful Indian attire, dancing energetically to the Bollywood hit ‘Dilbar’ from the movie Satyamev Jayate.

“We are already getting into the Diwali groove! Watch our American divas shake a leg together on a hit Bollywood song!” the embassy captioned the lively video.

Social media users flooded the comments with positive responses. One user on X exclaimed, “Amazing choreography there! Wonderful to see young ladies giving it their all. Thoroughly enjoyed. Best wishes for a blessed Diwali to all of you. Cheers.” Another added, “Enjoy the festive spirit. Let peace, happiness, and good sense be blessed on everyone.”

This cross-cultural celebration not only showcased the festive spirit of Diwali but also emphasized the unity and shared joy among people from diverse backgrounds.
