AAMU Faculty, Staff Help Present Best of Indian Culture!

AshaKiran (“A Ray of Hope”) held its annual event, focusing on and celebrating a select country.  This year’s “India Festival” was held on Saturday, August 31, at the Von Braun Center North Hall.  It offered a comprehensive showcase of Indian culture through jewelry, fashion, music, food and numerous displays.  Throughout the day, many members of the AAMU Family played active roles in facilitating the event.  PHOTOS

AshaKiran is committed “to educate, empathize and empower” persons of South Asian and other foreign-born origins while providing culturally sensitive and confidential services to people experiencing traumatic/stressful situations.

A highlight of the program was a talk by Arun Manilal Gandhi, a grandson of India’s legendary leader Mohandas K. “Mahatma” Gandhi.  Arun, a journalist and author, is an agent for change and communicates motivational approaches to global and personal transformation by urging people to “be the change” that they seek.
