The Sikh Students Association at the University of Texas held their first ever Desi Culture Night.
Desi is the term used to refer to the people of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
The Daily Texan reported the night featured arts, games and performances to showcase the various religions and cultures of South Asia.
“One of the main goals of our organization is to foster a campus-wide understanding of cultural diversity, particularly as it relates to Sikhs and people of Punjabi origin,” said Harleen Deol, vice-president of the Sikh Students Association. “By organizing this event, we wanted students to get a first-hand experience of the different South Asian
cultures and religions in hopes of spreading awareness of our under-representation on campus.”
