UIA Celebrates Baishakhi 2007

05/02/2007

Over 100 people attended the United India Association Baisakhi celebrations held  in Newton on April 27, 2007. Featuring music, dance and a fabulous dinner the event was able to bring out the joie-de-vivre that is characteristic of Baisakhi celebrations in India.

Baisakhi is a festival that stands for the dawn of a new year in the northern India, especially the state of Punjab. In Punjab, Baisakhi has a unique significance; the day also commemorates the founding of the Khalsa by the tenth guru, Guru Gobind Singh. It is also the time of harvest when the farmers dance to celebrate the fruits of their labor.

The committee had spent a lot of time and effort in creating a welcoming ambience. The dinner was a full course meal sure to please the most demanding of palettes. The goal of organization is to 'unite' people.  Since 1984, UIA has been organizing events that bring people together. The association welcomes every Indian to be part of it.
