Transcript Diversely United If you wish to know something about India you must forget all preconceived notions. Why be imprisoned by the limited vision of the prejudiced? Don't try to compare. India is different and, exasperating as it may seem, would like to remain so. Indian students were able to express their rich and diversified culture by participating in the India Students' Association. In fact, the organization was so active that it received the award for the most active organization on campus for Fall '87. Members first began working together for the Fall International Food Fair. In preparation for the event, several members spent hours — including the entire night before the event — building a Taj Mahal-like booth and arranging for the delicious food. After great teamwork, ISA won 1st place for combined booth and food decoration. Shortly following the Food Fair was a fashion show in the UC Arbor. The 12 participants dazzled an audience of more than 300 with colorful saris, suits, and three-piece sari-like gowns. Spring brought a new zeal for activities, including a successful Valentine's dance co-sponsored with PSA, and a music show co- sponsored with SASO and PSA. Meanwhile, the constitution committee tried to keep busy preparing changes in the constitution .. • the show had several climatic moments ... film dances, a candle dance, "Brides of India," comedy, a raffle of saris ... INDIA STUDENTS' ASSOCIATION wins 1st place at the International Food Fair with the help of Hemesh, Niroj, Sonaii, President Utpal, Jimmy, Hari, V-P Gita, Ricky, Divyesh, Secretary Himanshu, Tina, Mihir, and countless others. to allow a seven-member executive committee. The big event of the semester was the Basant Bahar '88 "Sitaron ki Shaam" variety entertainment show. Although the show had several problems, beginning with a last-minute mix-up with the auditorium, the majority agreed that the show had several climatic moments ... film dances, a candle dance, "Brides of India," comedy, a raffle of saris ... As the year and the program came to an end, the ISA members joined together one final time to sing, with the audience, the national anthem of India. "Jai Hind!" ISA members, Gaurav Sood, Divyesh Das, V-P Gita Oberoi, and President Utpal Mehta express their excitement as they accept the trophy for 1st place in the food fair. In the UC Arbor, Kalpana Bhakta and Hari Loganathan show students the true colors of Indian fashion.
