The Hindu Society of Brazos Valley
After attending the Annual Cultural Day at the Shri Omkarnarth Temple on Saturday, I was able to understand how important their Hindu history and tradition are. It was a large event that included dances, plays put on by the children, and a live band. They wore traditional Hindu attire known as the kurta for men and the sari for women. However, there was also a modern appeal to the temple as many were dressed in nice everyday clothes as well. Their main goal for the event was to demonstrate their Hindu values and customs. Their digital tools included microphones, projectors and screens, and sound amplifiers.
