Bathukamma and Dasara Celebrations

Dr HUGH McDERMOTT ( Prospect ) ( 13:35 ): On Saturday 8 October, I was delighted to attend the Bathukamma and Dasara celebrations, organised by Telangana Jagruthi Australia and held at the Sydney Baha'i Centre. In attendance was Indian member of Parliament Mrs Kalvakuntala Kavitha, who is heavily involved with work promoting culture, women, children's welfare and skill development in India. Mrs Kavitha is also President of Telangana Jagruthi India. Those familiar with India will recognise Telangana as a State of India, with Hyderabad as its capital city. Bathukamma is the floral festival, representing cultural spirit and women. Dasheera is a celebration of victory of good over evil. I would like to thank the executive committee of Telangana Jagruthi Australia, Mr Nishidhar Borra, Mr Anil Munagala, Mr Ganesh Bandi, Mrs Samantha Reddy, Mr Kiran Manda and Mr Rajesh Arshanapalli for organising this wonderful event.
