The Montgomery Hindi School in New Jersey, held recently its 10 year of celebrating Garba. Some 850 people attended the joyful event at the school which was founded by Sudha and Dr. Shiv K. Agarwal and other community volunteers more than a decade ago, to educate and empower young students about their cultural legacy.
“This annual event proved once again to be a colorful testament to the school’s mission,” organizers said. Among those at the gathering were some high-profile guests including Senator Andrew Zwicker of New Jersey Legislative District 16 and Deputy Mayor Neena Singh of Montgomery. Their attendance and the outpouring of support from the Montgomery community underscored the idea that community and family transcend race and religion, organizers maintained.
Senator Zwicker and Deputy Mayor Singh both shared their appreciation for Montgomery Hindi School’s efforts to preserve and promote Indian heritage. The Montgomery Hindi School has exposed children to Hindi language and Indian culture for over 13 years, and events like Garba serve as a testament to their dedication, reminding everyone of the beauty and significance of staying connected to their root.
The Montgomery Hindi School and Marlboro Hindi School are non-profit organizations, part of the Hindi & Indian Culture Association of USA (HICA-USA).
