Culture For Every Age At TAMA Ugadi Celebrations

The Telugu Association of Metro Atlanta (TAMA) celebrated Ugadi on April 17, at Meadow Creek High School in Norcross. Around 600 people from Atlanta's Telugu community attended the event that included a Kids Fest and cultural programs.

The Kids Fest, which is aimed at helping children in building their talents included Jeopardy with the topic ?Freedom Fighters of India', drawing and coloring competitions, shlokas/songs competition, essay writing on the topic, "What TAMA should do for kids and to involve them actively", and a video games exchange program. There was also brainstorm sessions, blindfold drawing, impromptu talk, and a talk on the "Significance of Freedom Fighters of India". The cultural programs were planned to involve individuals of all age groups and included children's dances, patriotic songs revolving around India, a medley of dances and songs from hit Telugu movies performed by teens, and drama.���

Miss TAMA, Teja Reddy Kadire, was present during the inaugural ceremony. The emcees for the evening were chosen from two generations, one representing youth and the other, the parents.

Surender Reddy Mutyala, the president of the association, said he hoped for an increased involvement by the Telugu community in all future TAMA activities.
