  • Hema Srikanta, founder of the organization of the festival at Marquette, enjoys attending the festival. “Even though we are away from home, we are all able to get together here, and recreate what was back at home.” Srikanta said. “The best part is the kids participating and learning our prayers and chanting it here. It's really wonderful. They are born and brought up here but they shows lot of interest in learning and continuing our traditions.”
