Onam@Saigon continued its top-notch agenda of uplifting music and dance, delicious food, including the “Ona-Sadhya,” (grand traditional feast) a smorgasbord of delicious curries, appetizers, main courses and desserts, and an additional Malabari spread.
It attracted some of the most amazing Indian fashionistas. Many festival-goers and performers came beautifully dressed in the saree, a traditional attire for Indian women all over the country.
The event commenced with the traditional ritual of lighting the lamp, signifying something good and auspicious. Light represents abundance, fortune, and auspiciousness in Hindu culture.
Onam committee and INCHAM together presented those funds to Honorable Consul General of India in HCMC as donation for flood victims in Kerala.
It was said that with more than 750 people attending the festival, the event was more successful than expected. They raised around $20,000, the bulk of which ($16,500) was handed over to the Indian Consul General in HCMC, and the rest to a Vietnamese orphanage and a center for specially-abled people.
