On the occasion of Haryana Day and 50 years of establishment of Haryana, the Haryanvi Association of Australia celebrated by showcasing Haryana’s rich cultural heritage at a cultural evening, which included songs, dance, music, food and humour! Since its creation in 1966, Haryana has emerged as a progressive state in India and set a great example of planned economic development. Haryana has combined growth with equity with minimum gap between rural and urban prosperity.
The grand event took place on 22nd October 2017 at The Grand Marion Harris Park NSW and also marked the first event organised by the Haryanvi Association of Australia, an organisation which is proud to be the first incorporated Haryanvi association in Australia.
About 250 members of the Indian community from all walks of life, including students, teachers, businessmen, retired persons, professionals and workers attended the function. The audience was welcomed with the traditional drink chaach!
A spectacular Haryanvi dance performance by Rupali and a Haryanvi folk song by the secretary of the Haryanvi Association of Australia, Vikram Singh, enthralled the audience. The vote of thanks was given by Vikram Singh.
