Spice up your month and experience the colors, sounds and smells of India at the 10th Annual India Fest tomorrow (3/20), presented by the India Cultural and Education Center.

“I think people will feel like they’re apart of India,” says Uma Sethuram, event coordinator.

This year’s theme is “Jai Ho!” and shares its name with a Hindi song from the Oscar-winning film Slumdog Millionaire. Playing up Bollywood, the event will showcase talent, music and dance. The ICEC is enthusiastic to educate about the unique cultures of the diverse states of India with food, games, jewelry, and henna.

“We are proud to be Americans but we are also proud of our Indian culture,” Uma says.

The fest runs from 10am to 6pm in the Santa Fe College gymnasium, building V. Parking is free and admissions is $3, but free for children ages 4 and under. For more information visit
