I think there is no harm in attending or organising a party if there is a reason to celebrate. But for the sake of enjoying, wasting money and having a overdose of liquor in parties is not a good suggestion.
Youngsters are indulging in illegal activities in the name of parties. Parents should monitor the activities of children and such parties should not be encouraged.
Late night parties on regular basis is also not advisable as it effects one's health and the next day's schedule.
In our country we can arrange parties according to our own convenience, that is what I feel.

Even this challenging situation would ease
Anyway, for middle-class people, it has no meaning except to waste the precious time. One can have such parties within the limited finance in one of the friend's house but that will be a great nuisance and botheration to his family members and they may not allow such parties in future.
There are many other ways in which one can have fun and frolic in life. Even the evening hours from 7 to 11 PM are sufficient for such indulgences. Why to cross the midnight mark?
Knowledge is power.
Partying late does not just belong to the high-class people. I have had many such experiences and it doesn't cost more than 1000-1500 per person if you eat and drink within limits.
I have seen different types of people who react and behave differently in these parties. By seeing these behaviours I feel the so-called modern people behave very silly sometimes. One person drinks the liquor as if he can't drink now, he will never get it again. Another person keeps the half-completed bottle in the bag for the next day at home. One person orders so many dishes as if he is not worried about the quantity. Bill is cleared by the company so no problem for him. Another person asks for two packets of food for the people in the house so that there will not be any necessity to cook in their house that night. They will come to the party by keeping only one thing at the house before starting. That is their modesty. They never feel awkward for their actions in the so-called modern midnight parties.
Modern means understanding the ancient customs being follow by us without knowing the reason and refusing those to accept
Raja Ram Mohan Roy is known as Father of modern India is just because once he refused the thinking of we Indians and support the Britishers and write a letter for British Crown. Due to this only our girls started studying in Gurukul. Those, according to we Indians are not allowed to study in higher classes. where dalits were allowed to enter in temples, who were not allowed to wear slippers and shirts.
Changing these customs by understanding them is known to be modern here no matter if someone told us we are accepting western things then yes we are accepting those as these are good for development of our country. we will accept these type of things further.
Changes are necessary if they are good
Then is late night partying correct? Well, it's not wrong as long as you're not serving booze. Now that's a problem because people drink at nights. But the guests of your party would need to leave. They can't drive themselves home in that state. Moreover they can misbehave with you or any other guest. They can try to misbehave with women.
Then is is really necessary to throw a party ? To show you're modern ? No. You can lead a modern life being completely unaware of the parties. There isn't much one can do in a party anyway. Singing and dancing a bit. Drinking a lot. Playing drunk games?
I don't such culture aesthetic. Well it's my view alone, if you like to party, nothing can stop you.
The stronger a light shines the darker are the shadows around it.
At a personal level, depending on the social circles we move in and our attitudes, there would be people who have a career that mandates them to attend many parties to maintain there presence and contacts, to get things moving on etc.
Lastly, it's not wrong to have a party to celebrate an achievement or milestone in life. We just need to do it a safe and responsible manner so that others are not disturbed, we travel safely and the flow of alcohol is in moderation and drugs are a big No.
