ISW walks off with 1st Place Float for the 4th year!

by Bhawna Sadhu, Amita Rao

Hard work and terrific execution with the addition of the ISW Symphony Dhol Tasha Lezim group, put the beautifully decorated ISW Float in first place again making it four years in a row that ISW has received this honor. The parade was part of the Spirit of Shrewsbury festival spanning the weekend and led off with the Shrewsbury's Got Talent show, managed each year by ISW. It was a pleasure to watch more than 40 contestants participating across 4 categories. The amazing contestants ranged from 4 year to 76-year-old with a great mix of talent on display from beat boxing performances to math wizardry. The feedback was uniformly positive with comments from the judges, parents and participants thanking the organizers for such a well-organized platform to showcase talent. Thanks to the ISW Cultural Committee, the judges and ISW Community for supporting this.

On Sunday, the second day of the Spirit of Shrewsbury, ISW participated in the Spirit of Shrewsbury parade. As we celebrate 75 years of India’s independence, ISW presented glimpses of children dressed in the native clothing of the different states in India and gave give a small peek at the amalgamation of cultures and traditions in India. The ISW team was excited to showcase the energetic rhythmic ISW Symphony Dhol Tasha Lezim ensemble - which represented the diversity and inclusiveness of Indian traditions wonderfully. The float was followed by Lezim dancers showcasing the folk-dance form with jingling cymbals that gave extra energy and rhythm. The ISW group give their heart and soul into this performance and had everyone listening to them dancing and enjoying along the way! For the fourth year in a row, the ISW Float was awarded first place. ISW welcomed judges to be part of Spirit of Shrewsbury parade.
