together at the first-ever Hindu Sangam. The event will feature a
diverse venue, with something for every member of the Hindu family, and
without an entry fee. Hundreds of students will kick-off the event with
a massive Ganesh puja. Every participant will receive a Ganesh Deity
with which they can participate in the ceremony. For adults, there will
be discussions on creating a proposal for a state-wide Hindu Holiday and
a city-wide Hindu Day of Service. The finale will include speeches and
performances by Swami Aksharanand, Ravi Kumar Iyer, and Satyanarayan
Morya. There will also be cultural dance performances, shopping
opportunities, games, prizes and food available through out the day. The
Hindu Sangam is a joint effort of many like-minded Hindu organizations
through out United States and nearly 10 Hindu Sangams will be taking
place around the country.”
