Suresh,
Can you post one or two (max) images for us to understand what kind of lighting you trying to shoot and how are your current results.
Also let us know values of Aperture (f number) and exposure time and ISO you are using in manual mode.

For low light conditions, you'll need a fast lens else you'll always get a motion blur in your pictures. To me, the best solution would be to get an external flash and bounce it off the ceiling or use a diffuser on your flash (if bouncing if not feasible)

You need more light, couple of studio lights or external flashes set to bounce from either side of the room will help quite a bit, otherwise you will end up with blurred images or grain or both.

When taking photographs at such events, inside closed rooms; it would be necessary to have apertures at high f stops to gain maximum depth of field. Under such circumstances, while you can crank up the ISO, it would lead to grainy exposures which would not be appreciated since you are dealing with humans. The best course of action would be to use an external flash.
