Normally at a university student’s function, one can expect a party out of control with lots of noise and chaos, that’s just how stereotypical we are. University of Queensland Indian Students Society proved everyone wrong by demonstrating leadership, exceptional organisational skills and above all responsibility and pride.
UQISS presented their inaugural Gala Night on 6th August at Indooroopilly State School Hall. The night showcased a kaleidoscope of Indian culture in form of Music, Drama and dances to relish the rich and vibrant culture of India.
The cultural performances included the classical form of songs and dance, such as Kathak by Dr Helena Joshi and vocal Recital by Venkat. Of course Bollywood dancers added charm to the glamorous night. The function began with an address by Umesh Chandra, Hindu Chaplain at University of Queensland, President- Queensland Multicultural Council and White Ribbon Queensland committee co chair.
Despite many functions on the night the nicely decorated and themed hall was packed to capacity. Dinner was served in the interval; all profit made at the event will be donated to ASHA (Australian South Asian Healthcare Association).
Congratulations to UQISS team for a wonderful event supporting a very worthy cause.
