ISW Language and Culture School celebrates Saraswati Puja

Saraswati Puja at India Center~by Shiamin Melville

Saraswati Puja was celebrated on March 14, 2010. It was attended by 85 parents and students. Ushaji led the puja with two student volunteers, Rishav Sarma, and Aarshiya Sachdeva. The ISW Sunday students performed several bhajans taught by Neelima Chatruvedi, and the ISW Telugu Saturday students performed shlokas. A group from Bhuvana Ganesh’s school with Sanjana Rao performed  bhajans.

There were individual items by Tanvi, Eva, Vidula, Sakshi, Ria, Aarshiya, Divya, Vikrant, Nidhee and Diksha accompanied by Ishwar Patel on the dholak. Nidhee was the emcee. To hear the young voices was very touching and kudos to the parents who have inculcated Hindu religion and bhajans at such a young age. The children were very happy to receive the small Saraswati  statuettes from Carolyn & Sahdev Passey, a tradition that has been repeated every year.
The ISW school would like to thank all the volunteers & families who supported the puja.
