Hindi-Urdu Event Celebrates South Asian Language and Culture
On November 11, NCSU’s Hindi-Urdu club hosted Hindi-Urdu Cultural Night to celebrate and showcase the diversity of South Asian culture. Students from the Hindi-Urdu program at NC State and members of Raleigh’s South Asian community collaborated in the performance of traditional songs, dances, and prayers and worked together to share many traditional foods with attendees.
Nilakshi Phukan, a professor within the Hindi-Urdu program at NC State, hopes that the event sparked interest in those who attended.
“I hope it generated interest in the Hindi-Urdu language program at NC State. It’s a great program that allows students to explore exciting opportunities in the diversity-rich culture of South Asia.”
