Utsav, Non-film Indian Cultural Program, Heritage Hall, Tallahassee, FL
Saturday, July 08, 2006, 5:00-8:00 PM
Today evening the Utsav, Indian non-film cultural program sponsored by India Association of Tallahasse, Florida went by very nicely. There were at least sixteen different items consisting of songs, skits, and recitals. The participants representing various parts of India gave performance highlighting the rich culture they bring to the US.
Our group preformed two Tamil segments. One about Auvaiyaar's Aathichoodi and another a song about a puppy. The participants from our group first spoke about Auvaiyaar and Aathichoodi and then they recited the first 13 lines of Aathichoodi in Tamil and told the meaning in English. Then say sang a song about a puppy entitled "Thoo Thoo Naai Kutty" (Woof, woof, Puppy Dog).
A big round of applause to the participants and thanks to the Event Organizers, The India Association of Tallahassee, FL.
