By planning themed events, the Indian Culture Club aims to spread awareness of multiculturalism.
The organization meets monthly to explore Indian culture and discuss and plan activities for the rest of the school year.
The club is run through advisor Sue Newlin.
The Indian Culture Club Association president Dhruv Patel and vice president Hari Patel came up with the idea to start the club.
“I [used to] attend North Penn and at the high school they had a club called Indian Culture Club Association,” Hari said.
The club’s main purpose is to celebrate different Indian culture activities in order to embrace the culture as well as expose Souderton students to it.
“We like to celebrate the culture through different activities involving different festivals,” Dhruv said. “[Navratri is] basically a festival of dancing. We worship God through dance.”
According to Dhruv, the club wants to host more events to help increase their members and student involvement.
“We don’t have a lot of members so we’re not hosting any big events,” Dhruv said. “We want to do picnics or try Indian food like spicy food challenges and what not.”
According to Hari, this year the club is looking to spread Indian culture to more students.
Dhruv believes that Indian Culture Club allows students to expand their knowledge.
“[The club] will give [students] the chance to express their culture and keep it with them,” Dhruv said. “It will allow everyone to embrace the Indian ethnicity [and] to feel the Indian event.”
Joining this club lets students learn about Indian culture and lets the students get involved with Indian culture from whatever background they are.
“People were aware of this club. We saw this at the club fair and students were interested in asking about what it was and everything,” Hari said.
