We are looking for enthusiastic performers for the Cultural programs and stage shows.If you would like to participate or you would like to choreograph a dance or be part of a musical group please fill in this form:Participation Form or contact

To make it an extremely successful and enjoyable event we need tons of volunteers. As you know, loads of preparation and efforts are needed to organize such big events. Some of the many exciting areas for volunteering include Photo booth, Sari tying, Mehendi (Henna), Artifacts, Vedic architecture, Cooking demos, Spices table, Food serving, Cleaning, Handicrafts, Raffles and dance lessons. If you can help out in any way, please fill this form with your name and availability: Volunteer Form or please contact
