CELEBRATING DIVERSITY: INDIA

Last month the Academy for Lifelong Learning at Empire State College in Saratoga Springs, New York invited Academy members and the general public to an afternoon of traditional Indian music, dancing, culture and refreshments. Participants had the opportunity to take part in an Indian folk dance, learn about Indian religions, experience mehandi(henna) and bindi application, and they learned how to don a sari. They viewed clips of traditional Indian weddings and Bollywood films. Attendees even had the opportunity to plan a future trip to India. Indian snacks, sweets and masala chai were served.

The Center for Distance Learning at Empire State College was the event sponsor. Karavalli Restaurant and Usha Chandra donated the food. Saratoga Today, the local newspaper, and Star 101.5 radio were media sponsors. This free and open-to-the-public Academy for Lifelong Learning 15th Anniversary special event was organized in collaboration with Bidhan Chandra of the Center for Distance Learning and the local Indian community.
