We began the New Year on an auspicious note starting with Purandara Dasa Jayanthi. It was held in the spacious auditorium of Indian Embassy. As per the tradition the program was dedicated to Purandara dasa, our KKK members sang enchanting Bhajans in praise of Lord Krishna. Thereafter a short enriching play was enacted based on the life of Purandara dasa. The program ended with an impressive finger licking lunch served for the first and time on banana leaves for which people sat humbly on the floor and enjoyed the traditional food and mouth-watering sweets such as Laddoos and Holige which had been specially flown from India by our Koota member Geeta Vasuki. It was a home away from home experience for all our members, as well as our guests from the embassy. People left with wistful memories of the day.
