IndUS-2011 at Radisson Paper Valley Hotel, Appleton
The annual IndUS banquet has become an established tradition in the Fox Valley. Over the years, our themes have educated and entertained the people about various aspects of India: Indian Architecture, Cinema, Dance and Music, Festivals, Folk Arts, Health and Wellness Science & Technology, Textile and Jewelry, and Tourism. Everyone of the previous annual banquet have been successful, sold out events.
IndUS-2011 will be celebrated on Saturday, November 19, 2011, at the Radisson Paper Valley Hotel, Appleton, from 5 to 9:30 p.m. As in the years past, the IndUS volunteers were invited to vote for a theme. The theme for IndUS-2011 is: Freedom: India’s Tryst With Destiny.
The selection of the theme was in no small measure inspired by the recent upsurge in Northern Africa, Middle East and Asia where people have sought basic freedoms. IndUS-2011 will trace the evolution of Indian freedom struggle that demonstrated the power of nonviolence against the might of the British Empire. Parallels between the Indian Satyagraha and the Civil Rights movement in the US will be captured in this year’s event.
The three main component of IndUS-2011 are the Exhibition & Reception; The Banquet, and Cultural Program.
