A colorful new year celebration aims to wipe away misconceptions about the country.

Tulsa Hindus will celebrate Ugaadi, the new year, next week with a public, multicultural program that includes folk and classical dance, music, a fashion show and traditional Indian food from Kolam Indian Restaurant, 4844 S. Memorial Drive.

"Our main purpose is to teach Indian culture to our kids who were born in the United States," said Hari Musapeta, with the sponsoring organization, Oklahoma Telugu Sangam.

"Our secondary purpose is to help our American friends to know about the rich Indian culture," he said.
