Hindu YUVA at California State University, East Bay:
Beyond just a play of colors, Holi is undeniably the favorite Indian festival of love that breaks the barriers of race, language, and personal differences. Hindu YUVA’s Holi event was exactly a display of this spirit when celebrated in the USA with not just Indians, but people from all backgrounds. There was Gulal in the air, typical Holi vibes with Dhol backed music, the chai-pakoda-samosa platter, and of course a cheerful dancing crowd drenched in colors and joy. This was all preceded by some warm-up events like traditional games, Yoga, and discussions on Holi. The group not only successfully organized a superb event but also left the ground spotlessly clean afterward. That earned huge appreciation from the authorities as a win-win display for all. Hindu YUVA collaborated in this effort with the Indian Student Association and Gujrati Student Association and received the Outstanding Collaborative Program of the year award from California State University: East Bay, Hayward, truly proving our philosophy of collaboration and service works for all! Big OM to the CSU East Bay Hindu YUVA team!! ॐॐॐ
