Walking Together: Feel the HSA Pulse
On Sunday July 17, 2011 Ashiana Restaurant on Briar Forest Drive was bustling with young Hindu students with a culturally rich aura. The Hindu Students Association that derives its vision from major texts of Sanatana Dharma and prominent visionaries, aims to empower young adults through education, service, devotion and meditation.
Most organizations are all about receiving, but HSA’s belief is different and wants to learn to be more giving. “We provide a platform for the young Hindu to voice their perspective focusing on youth, college students to young professionals, HSA builds a strong network for Hindus and keeps them connected,” informed Sonny K. Mehta National President, Hindu Students Association.
What set the evening apart were the very impressive talented young Indian Americans taking the initiative and participating in various religious and cultural activities. The organizers made it very clear that it was an evening for free dinner, great musical entertainment and no fundraising efforts, which was unique in itself – giving not taking.
The banquet witnessed a packed house as guests gathered to show their appreciation for the young achievers and support the community. Pandit Suman Ghosh is the torch bearing disciple of Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj-ji and very generously gave a performance as a donation to the Hindu Students Association.
