July 30, 2011
The Biennial Convention of Kerala Hindus of North America (KHNA) was held in Washington DC at Hyatt Regency Crystal City on 1st July under the Chairmanship of Dr. MG Menon, a well known and respected cultural activist for several decades in the capital. Nearly 1000 delegates from all around USA congregated at the venue with family members. The gala event started off with traditional Kerala ritualistic drums and customary rituals and procession watched by awe struck Americans and enthusiastic audience.
The galaxy of VIPS from both Kerala and America adorned the aesthetically decorated arena. Representatives of Hindu religious organisations and many scholarly Swamijis gave talks, debates on Hindu religion during the 3 days of seminars, lectures and culturally enlightening entertainments. It was heartening to see a lot of youngsters, both boys and girls, taking part in such events and contributing their support to Hindu religion.
The famed dancing duo from Kerala, the Dhananjayans, gave a Bharatanatyam recital on the inaugural day. They were awarded with a plaque of honour for their contribution and lifetime achievements.
