Call for Participants:


The Hindu Heritage Day (HHD) organized by VHPA is being planned for Saturday, May 20, 2017, at Marlborough Middle School, Marlborough, MA. We are building our efforts in planning the cultural program for this year’s event. As in the past, with your help and support, we expect this year’s event to be a resounding success.

This year’s Hindu Heritage Day theme is Bahurangi. The literal meaning of Bahurangi is “that of many hues, having many variations.” This is probably the most appropriate word to describe India. Bahurangi encompasses all shapes, sizes, colors, tastes, variations and contrasts. It embraces differences and celebrates diversity. Bahurangi means varied, something that consists of various types, colors, sizes and qualities. Our traditions and culture, from languages, music, dance, cuisine, customs, rituals and attire are varied. The variety is indeed unmatched. As one goes from Kanya Kumari to Kashmir and the Arabian Sea to Brahmadesh, the landscapes change, flora and fauna are different, cuisine is distinct, attire varies and so do customs. However, as you peek in, the essence behind all the variations in our culture is constant, unchanging. It is this Bahurangi Parampara that we would like to bring to the audience, with your help.

We invite you and your group to perform at the HHD. In order to maximize entries and give everyone an opportunity to participate and also have a timely conclusion for our cultural program, we have to limit one entry per organization, and enforce a time limit of 6 minutes per item, and a minimum number of five participants per item.

To insure appropriate logistics, please let us know of your intent to participate and the title of your item no later than February 26th 2017.

Please note there is a $25 participation fee per group. All proceeds from participation fees will go towards sponsoring the “Support a Child” program. For more information about this program, please visit
