Transcript jsociaoon boutfi Asian LiJWai As; e^ajioinqr ciiioijral Ikiiowieilii As one of the most diverse universities in the nation, it's not surprising that we had numerous organizations based on different religions, cultures, nationalities, and ethnicities. One of the newest ethnic-oriented organizations at the University of Houston was the South Asian Cultural Association (S.A.C.A.). This association was created for anyone interested in learning about the unique cultures present in South Asia. The organization expanded students' knowledge of these cultures about the different music, food, traditions, and lifestyles from such countries as India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. "My main purpose in starting S.A.C.A. was to provide an opportunity for all individuals to experience something new, and to learn about something which had been missing at UH for so long. What inspired me to start S.A.C.A. were the interested students who wanted to learn about the different South Asian Cultures on campus," said founder of S.A.C.A., Deepak Doshi, a junior and MIS business major. S.A.C.A. not only informed students, staff, and faculty with an interest: the association also helped the communities in the South Asian countries through service and non-profit sales. Plus, it gave students from the different South Asian countries opportunity to join each other in helping out for a good cause, socializing, discovering differences within their own cultures, and building friendships to last a lifetime with everyone. "The reason I wanted to be a part of S.A.C.A. was because I feel like there is a lack of awareness about the South Asian cultures on campus. I want to help spread knowledge about the Indian culture and others at UH. For example, we recently had a Diwali celebration here, which is an annual Indian celebration. Also, though we're a cultural organization, we not only help educate people about the diverse cultures from South Asia, we do community service as well," said S.A.C.A Historian Amy Shah, a senior health major. - Sadaf Farooqui S.A.C.A.
