Syracuse University’s South Asian Student Association (SASA) presented Navratri Garba 2017, a Hindu festival which celebrates Lord Ram’s victory over the demon king Raavana.

According to SASA public relations director Divya Murthy, more than 170 students attended the festival in Goldstein Auditorium. They enjoyed a dinner of rice, naan, vegetable korma, and dal, and finishing with gulab jamuns as desserts. Students took the dance floor both teaching and learning the traditional Gujarati and Rajasthani folk-dance, Garba.
