Evening in India 2011 - Synopsis

Thanks to the generous support and enthusiastic participation from the community, IHI was able to raise over $8000 for the three NGOs in India. It was a great evening because of the combined efforts of so many people in the London and greater community. We had approximately 300 guests in the audience, and up to 100 performers! As a group we were able to showcase and learn about so many different regions of India, with their different colours, languages and vibrancy. Hopefully we were able to foster a bond between Canada and India - facilitating the exchange of ideas and building on common human values.

IHI would like to thank the following individuals for helping us preserve the memory of this evening:
  • Dr. Sydney Siu, Lauren Sham (gallery), and Samuel Cheng (gallery) for photography.
  • Dr. Praful Chandarana for video recording.
  • Dr. Dev Sainani for creating a DVD using the footages.
