Photo courtesy of ISA CULTURAL ^ "ifcl^ftJltr bring their heritage to UH The University of Houston housed a large population of Indian Students, many of whom were disconcerted with the change from their own culture to that of the United States. For this reason, among others, the Indian Student Organization was formed, and worked to raise campus awareness of the Indian culture, as well as help its members to get in touch with their own heritage. The Indian Student Association (ISA) helped its members to celebrate their customs with banquets, religious celebrations and other activities centered on the Indian culture. For many of their events, such as the Basant Bahar (Spring Season] celebration, participants wore Indian clothing, followed Indian customs, and ate the foods traditionally prepared for those holidays in India. Drawing more than one thousand people, the Basant Bahar was the ISAs biggest annual Ts important to share your culture with everyone else" • Baiju Shah event. The group also helped to coordinate the Nava Ratri (Nine Nights), a Hindu festival which takes place each year at the Astroarena. Festivities included traditional folk dancing and refreshments. "I love promoting the events" said sophomore Baiju Shah, the president of ISA. These events, coordinated in conjunction with other international organizations on campus and throughout Houston, often included performances of music and dance from India. In an effort to give back to the community, ISA also encouraged its members to engage in community service projects. They worked with Indian doctors in the area, assisting with their duties in any way they could. They also combined with other organizations around campus, giving tours and doing anything else they could to raise consciousness about their organization. -Ashley Grubbs PERFORMANCE ART Freshman business major Amy Kadakia performed at the Diwali Banquet.
