Saturday, August 17, 2013
Godby High School Auditorium
The India Association of Tallahassee (IATLH | www.iatlh.org) celebrated the 67th Indian Independence Day and Utsav 2013 at the Jeff Bradford Auditorium at the Godby High School Auditorium in Tallahassee, FL, USA. The program began with unfurling of the Indian national flag followed by singing of Indian national anthem and American national anthem.
It was followed by speech contest where nine members spoke on pre-selected topics for three minutes. Following the speech contest, Utsav 2013, non-filmy cultural program began and featured group dances, group songs, and musical instrumental pieces.

Immediately following intermission, we staged our Hindi comedy drama. The cast members were members of Learn Hindi group and mostly non-native Hindi speakers. I had obtained a copy of a Hindi skit from the Internet and modified it and the Hindi teacher added more lines and parts for people. The skit called Rangeen School was staged and all performed well and the audience liked it. Then there were few more programs, speech contest winner announcement and the quiz.
