Participating in the youth seminar at the 9th Annual Legislative conference organized by the Indian-American Friendship Council provided for a constructive dialogue. American Hindu Awareness Council (AHAC) Coordinator Srikant Mookerjee stressed the need for our public education system to reflect the America of the 21st century that enables its students to learn Hindi and Tamil along with French and Italian and allows students to take a day off from school to celebrate Deepavali along with Christmas and Hanukkah."
