New Englanders Celebrate India Day, ISW Fills DCU Center,.......
BOSTON—Thousands of Indians and Indian Americans celebrated India's Independence Day over the weekend across New England. The two largest events in the region were organized by India Society of Worcester (ISW) in Worcester, MA, and India Association of Greater Boston (IAGB) at Boston's Hatch Shell along the scenic Charles River.
The third annual ISW camping trip to Treasure Valley Boy scout Reservation in Rutland, MA was a great success. It was great to see many first time campers. It was nice to see several families with small children and grandparents. Activities included Archery, Riffle Shooting, Canoeing, Kayaking and field sports. Playing Antakshari and Tambola around the campfire while the kids had fun making Smores in the campfire added a cerian uniqueness to the trip. There was of course lots of India food and desserts. Many people went on a hiking trail or went around the reservation on bikes. Saturday night was perfect for star gazing. All volunteers did a magnificent job in planning the trip in great detail. The fun of this camping trip clearly comes out in the pictures posted on Facebook.
This month's Sadhana was dedicated to Graduate students of ISW member families. The program started with Havan (Fire Ritual) and Pooja held by Mrs.Usha Verma. Usha ji directed and explained each part of ritual of this pooja and nicely guided all students to do pooja.
Many of us got to know that Havan dispels the negative energies from our minds.It brings high energies into our minds and body thereby paving way for the positive thoughts and actions to enter into our lives. It invokes blessings and grace of God in our lives. It cleanses the atmosphere and really it did.The whole ambience was filled with purity, blessings and peace.
As part of the ISW2020 inititaive, ISW held a very succesfull Carrom Compettition on Sunday, June 7, 2014. 48 players (the maximum limit planned) participated in this tournament. Participants included teenagers as well as 60+ years old youngsters playing the games.
We were fortunate to have Prof. Satya Parayitam as a referee in this tournament. Prof. Satya have represented Delhi State in carrom tournaments at National level in India. He also trains young students to play professional carrom while teaching management at University of Dartmouth. During the tournament, he shared some of the meaningful insights of playing the game. This made the tournament - both competitive & filled with fun. Everybody enjoyed chai and namkeen too while playing.
