30 Organizations Come Together to Celebrate October as Hindu Heritage Month
Events like World Bindi Day will kick on the celebrations
HI INDIA NEWS DESK
HOUSTON, TX – More than 30 organizations including faiths from Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist, and Jain traditions from around the world, have named October as the Hindu Heritage Month. Hindus represent one of the fastest-growing immigrant communities in the United States and Canada. Backed by a rock-solid family structure and love for education, they are fully integrated into every aspect of their adopted society, enriching it with outstanding professional contributions and rich cultural heritage. From the elegant ethnic wear to delicious food to festivals like Holi and Diwali, their diverse and rich culture has impressed the Western world.
The celebration of Hindu Heritage Month will be a showcase for the diversity that is fundamental to Hindu civilization. Each participating organization will decide the manner as well as the schedule of their event(s). On a given day, there may be several events taking place in different parts of the United States and Canada. Celebrations may take many forms – cultural programs, fashion shows, webinars, multi-day conferences, walkathons, and more, the choices being limited only by our imagination. Some events may be conducted in person but the majority will be virtual, given the Covid-19 situation.
Participation is open to all organizations, businesses and individuals that identify with the sanatana (everlasting) values embodied in Hindu dharma.
Mission Bindi and Hindu Student Council will be observing the “World Bindi Day” on the first day of Navratri, October 7,
Dr. Jai Bansal, Vice President – World Hindu Council of America, and one of the organizers of this event say, Hindu community is, by nature, rather unassuming. However, with second and third generations now making their mark in their adopted lands, the time has come for the Hindu community to come out of their shell and talk about its rich cultural heritage.
Any organization that wishes to participate in the HHM celebration can register as a partner on the website: www.hindumonth.org.
