Beginning the new year with a culture connect

By Our Reporter

On 28 April, Punjab Aussie Association of SA celebrated the new year and its fourth year with a Vaishakhi Mela at the lush green Civic Park in Modbury. More than 7,000 people attended the event, which featured breathtaking performances, sumptuous food stalls and distinguished guests. And icing on the cake was the presence of the Governor from the state.

Founder of the association Rajesh Thakur plans to continue the tradition of organising initiatives that help the young generation of Indian Australians connect with bring Indian heritage. “These festivals instil the feeling of our rich Punjabi culture even when we are far from India,” he says.
