Wherever we go, cultural and linguistic affinities are sought after as they provide the much needed social comfort for Indians. A home away from home, these cultural groups extend all facilities and even organise gala ceremonies during festivals that are celebrated with pomp like Diwali, Dusshera, Krishna Jayanthi and Holi in India.
Getting the full patronage of NRIs, these cultural associations act as a source of joy and nostalgia for Indian immigrants who look forward to the merriment of social interaction and the flavour of Hindu festivals being hosted by them.
