The Indian community gathered for a recent festival to bring friends and family together.November 14, 2012 4:39am
The Indian community of Benalla has grown significantly in the past few years, many working in Benalla as engineers at Thales, Schneider and Henderson.
Ten years ago a handful of families were living here, now we have close to 30 families making Benalla their home and striving to be an effective and efficient part of the community.
Festivals and gatherings are a big part of Indian culture. A community festival — ‘Navaratri’ — was held on November 20 at Benalla’s CWA Hall.
Garba nite was the central attraction of these celebrations, in which performers — men and women — clad themselves in colourful and attractive traditional attire and dance.
The group celebrated this festival with people from many different parts of the world, which showed the celebration was not about any one region or religion.
It was also a chance for the younger people to learn more about the Indian culture and help keep alive the traditions.
