The South Asian Society is a non-profit, socio-cultural organization that has been created to promote unity and awareness amongst the South Asian students of The George Washington University, including such countries as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka. SAS is proud to put on events such as Bhangra Blowout™, Raas Chaos, and other events open to The George Washington University community as well as the greater Washington, D.C. Community.

Mission: It is the mission of SAS to actively create programs and lectures representing the cultural diversity of South Asian countries. However, we also are determined to increase political activism and awareness of the South Asian community on campus. Toward this end, SAS has worked in conjunction with other student groups to develop the university’s South Asian curriculum. Further, SAS has begun to actively work with other organizations such as the Indian American Center for Political Awareness (formerly the India Abroad Center for Political Awareness) and the Indian-American Political Awareness Committee. It is also the mission of our organization to develop stronger ties amongst the South Asian community. SAS has had a long-standing history of working with all nations in our events and creating unifying programs.

This board member constantly makes us laugh with all of his goofy jokes and constantly inspires us through his snap stories and Facebook posts...show some love for our Community Development Chair, Taha Rana😊❣️ “I became involved because I grew up in a mostly white community where I was one of the only South Asian kids. When I came to college, I saw SAS as an opportunity to stay engaged with my culture and also gain the perspective of other South Asian kids, a perspective I am unable to gain in my hometown. Joining SAS has made me realize that I'm proud to be South Asian and I am astounded at how much I am able to relate to my peers in SAS. Joining SAS has been one of the best decisions I've made in college.”

We have had such an amazing time getting to know our freshmen representatives this past year and absolutely love them and the energy and excitement they have brought to our organization! One of our freshmen representatives this year is Sohini Ashoke 😊
——
“I became involved with SAS because I strongly believe that South Asia—more specifically, the region's distinct culture, politics, and history—is highly underrepresented in conversations around diversity and cultural awareness, and that unity among South Asians—especially in South Asia's current political climate—is more important than ever. When I first came to GWU I felt isolated given how the school is predominantly white, and wanted to be part of a community of South Asians. Furthermore, my South Asian identity is a significant part of how I define myself. It is rooted in my appreciation for everything the values of this culture have given and taught me. Whether that be strong family and social values, beautiful dance and art forms, and of course, the food, I've never found so much community like I have with fellow South Asians! Luckily this turned out to be true, and SAS has been the most supportive and amazing community I’ve had the privilege to be part of here at GW.” ❣️

“My freshman year, I was a liaison for Bhangra Blowout and my team placed first. Even though I had only been with the team for a little over 24 hours, the moment they won, it was an indescribable experience. Watching them celebrate their win was definitely my most/ memorable SAS moment.”

Much love for one of our hardworking Programming Directors, Shariq Farooqi !!! Swipe to see how cute our beloved director looked before and now 🤩✨
“My most memorable moment of SAS was putting on the Freshmen Dinner this year with Nur & Devyani. To see the impact of our work really made everything worthwhile. Seeing all of the South Asian orgs on campus come together and intermingle with freshmen was definitely something I enjoyed. Seeing all the bright faces of the freshmen who were excited to get involved in our community is something that reminded me of why I continue to stay involved with SAS.”🥰

Hi everyone! We wanted to take a moment to thank everyone involved in the planning for Bhangra Blowout including: BB Board, Liaisons, SAS Board, and our competing and exhibition teams! Everyone had put so much time and effort into making the competition amazing, and we are certain that it would have been a memorable weekend. A very special thank you to our directors, Pekhna Singh and Junaid Muhammed. We are grateful to have had such dedicated individuals who have spent so much of their time planning a major event that impacts so many people in our community and the collegiate bhangra circuit. They have truly gone above and beyond for Bhangra Blowout. Thank you again for being such wonderful directors❣️ We are excited for Bhangra Blowout to return next year! For now we hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. Love SAS✨💗

& here is our other charming and dedicated Bhangra Blowout Director, Junaid Muhammed! He joined the South Asian Society because... “I was looking for a group of people I could join when I first came to college as a Freshman. Its hard finding people in a completely new environment that have a background similar to yours. With SAS I was lucky enough to find that group of people whom I could call family.” ✨❣️ Also, check out the freshmen to sophomore year glowup of our amazing director (we still love you with or without the beard 🥺)

I have gotten to learn more about South Asian cultures that I had not known much before joining this community. SAS has allowed me the opportunity to meet wonderful, passionate South Asians and has given me a place of belonging. :)”

You already know what it is!! That’s right, we’re back with yet another spotlight, and this time it’s GW BSA’s beautiful freshman representative: Hasna Chowdury! 💗💫~ “I became involved in BSA because of how important being Bengali means to me. Growing up, I was very lucky to live in a predominately Bengali area where I learned many things such as being kind and how to value relationships with the people I love. My identity means so much to me and I know I didn’t want to lose that coming to college. BSA gave me a little family and family means so much to me especially now that I’m far from home. I’m looking forward to expanding my family at GW by pushing myself to learn more about other South Asian identities which will help me understand what home actually means.”

Check out our emcee for this weekend’s event: A Night with Penn Masala!!! Show some pyar for the cutest and loving senior advisor, Nazra Amin🥺💖

“I became involved with SAS my freshman year because I immediately felt at home when I attended the freshman/transfer students dinner. I decided that night that I wanted to make this organization and the individuals in it an integral part of my college experience. I did just that, and I think it is one of the best decisions I've made. I have learned so much from the people in this organization, from the events we host, and from being a leader in the South Asian community. Even more than that, I have made friendships that I know will last the rest of my life - and for that, I am forever grateful to GW's SAS.”

Introducing one of the most instrumental people on board, one of our South Asian Heritage Celebration Chairs Ashwath Narayanan!! 💥🤩 “One of my most significant memories with SAS has been Raas Chaos. I had been to a dance competition before but never have I helped with the behind the scenes of one. I not only learned a lot but it was such a great experience bonding with the rest of the board and working together towards a collective goal. I’m super excited to continue working with SAS, especially during Bhangra Blowout - the next dance competition!”

We’re back again with another spotlight, so this time show some love to Siddarth, a freshman representative from ISA!!✨ ~ “I have always felt a deep connection to my Indian culture. Through 7 moves during my grade school years, I always found comfort in my Indian identity. No matter where I moved or how new I was, I was always able to connect with Indian kids; be it on movies, music, or our common struggles as Indian kids in predominantly white towns. As I grew older, I often found myself educating my peers about Indian culture, encouraging them to look beyond the stereotypes and into the vast either that represents 29 states, thousands of languages and dialects, and over one billion people. When I came to GW it only felt right to continue that work with the Indian Students Association. Today, I find myself helping ISA as more of a passion project, a thank you of sorts. A thank you to a part of me that has always helped me feel at home no matter where I am.”

"I joined SAS to get the sense of community with South Asians my age that I never really had growing up. At my high school, there wasn't a very large South Asian community, so I knew that this was something I wanted to find at university. I am so glad I got involved, because I have been able to meet some of the greatest people, and experience some of the most fun moments of my college experience!"

We know you’ve been missing our super exciting highlights of our South Asian community at GW, so here’s our first one for 2020: Misaal, Freshmen Representative for GW’s Pakistani Student Association !!! ✨😜
“Hi! I’m Misaal and I’m a freshman here at GW. I joined PSA this year as a Freshman Rep and it really allowed me to find an amazing group of fellow desis on campus. Not only have I been able to find amazing friends, but I’ve been able to openly and proudly celebrate our culture, have new fun experiences, like desi prom, and work to promote and plan new events that bring together GW’s larger Pakistani community. I have been able to work on my passions in the process like photography and write about my experience of being a Pakistani American student in DC on my instagram blogging account called @millennialbrownn Overall i’m super proud to be of South Asian descent and love that I can openly celebrate and teach others about my background @ GW!”

“I joined GW SAS in the first few weeks of freshman year hoping to make friends — little did I know that this group of people would quickly become my family. Regardless of my age or background, SAS has always given me a sense of warmth and support. This group of people is so driven to promote positive change and advancement of the South Asian community that it’s hard not to develop a sense of purpose by joining. Through SAS, I have learned the importance of teamwork, leadership, and community impact. I am grateful to have made so many memories with incredible people — and even further, I feel blessed that these bonds will follow me beyond college.”

It's a new month, so we have a new theme for our South Asians of GW spotlights!! 🤩 This month, our theme is leaders in dance and art and to kick us off we are excited to highlight Meghana Tallam from GW Raas!

"Usually, the immigrant experience is portrayed as something that has to be overcome. I can’t speak for anyone else but I’ve always loved growing up as part of the South Asian community; it was like I have twice as much to explore. A big part of it was through doing classical dance where I got to stay connected to my heritage while meeting other South Asian kids like me. Going to college was daunting because I wasn’t sure if I would have that anymore. I am incredibly grateful that joining Raas has also given me that sense of community, friendship and enjoyment. It has been the most defining part my college experience and I couldn’t be happier that I’ve spent the past few years doing what I love with such an amazing team."

Speaking of raas, Meghana and the rest of the GW Raas team will be performing next weekend on November 16th at Raas Chaos!! Get your tickets quick, because we're having a ✨ FLASH SALE ✨ that ends tonight ($1 off tickets) -- $9 for GW students and faculty and $14 for non-GW

Hi, My name is Uzair Younus and I play in the Washington Cricket League. The WCL is the largest cricket league in the DMV area and has three divisions - Div II, I, and Premier. My team PCC is in Div I and is looking for players to join our club for the upcoming 2018 season which starts in May and runs through October. I myself learnt about the cricket leagues in the US during my time as a student in Boston, and figured I reach out to universities in the DMV area to find young students who share a passion for the sport. Our club starts its practice sessions soon and we would love to have cricket enthusiasts who are looking to play cricket in the DC area come and try out for our team. Please pass this message along and ask any interested students to contact me via email at [email protected]

Hello, I hope this message finds you well, and that you're having a rewarding semester! My name is Parth Vohra, and I am a student news reporter at Voice of America (VOA). VOA is an autonomous government funded news organizations that broadcasts in radio, TV, and web in 47 different languages (www.voanews.com). All my stories at VOA can be viewed at my author's page here: https://www.voanews.com/author/27140.html. In addition, I am a Political Science, Theater & Performance Studies and Journalism junior at the University of California-Berkeley. I am an international student from India, and I came to the United States for the first time in the fall of 2015. This semester, I am participating in a “domestic-abroad” academic program that brings together an internship experience with a research seminar and an elective course in the nation’s capital. I truly love DC. It is a perfect blend of metropolis and culture, and the experience has not only taught me a lot about myself and given me the connections of a lifetime both personally and professionally, but has also re-affirmed my decision to pursue human rights journalism as a definite career. In my work, I hope to use journalistic tools as a catalyst for social and political change. I am interested in reporting on topics of immigration, ethics and law, social justice, diasporic communities, human rights and regional conflict. What I really like about journalism is the “human-element.” Stories in regard to human interest, and those affecting lives of humans first instigated me pursue journalism classes at Berkeley, and my love for writing. This week, I penned a personal column on the bonds created between Indian, Pakistani, and Bangladeshi students in the U.S., despite the hostility between their cultures back home. And, argued that the credit for that goes to language. Whenever I speak to someone in Urdu, or Hindi, or Punjabi; I feel truly connected, and belonged, and inclusive. It seems to me that the borders between India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are blurred in a foreign country, and in-fact, if you are from one of them, you should not consider yourself as Indian, or Pakistani, or Bangladeshi, but from all three. My story can be viewed here. I'm sure you'll enjoy it: https://www.voanews.com/a/language-bonds-students-abroad-whose-cultures-clash-at-home/4092428.html. My story also mentions Coke Studio's "Afreen-Afreen" -- which is my all time favorite song. In regard to the blurring and seguing of South Asian cultures in the U.S., and how language helps togetherness, I will be hosting a Facebook Live session on Thursday, and it be wonderful if you any of you could participate and share your thoughts? We will also have Professor Kavita Daiya on board. It's going to be a fun and casual chat, and will be hosted at GWU's Phillips Hall. The chat will be from between 25 and 30 minutes. The Facebook Live will be shared through "VOAStudentU" -- which has an audience of primarily an international students. Another Facebook Live session I conducted was at Diwali at Georgetown. It can be viewed here: https://www.facebook.com/voastudentu/videos/1684381638247706/?hc_ref=ARQQKOIP7CDsLj4qc636xbLKzD22nD_XgLzngdA-i8Z-FBE3IphUmBYmfS-ATtRlLxA&pnref=story. Let me know what you think! Looking forward to hearing from you! Please let me know, if you or any of your members are interested. We can conduct the Facebook Live at GW, or via Skype! For any other questions you can call me at 510-944-5862! Thank you, Yours respectfully, Parth Vohra

Dear GWU South Asian Society Members, I am a doctoral candidate in The College of William & Mary's Counselor Education and Supervision program. I am looking for a few more participants for my dissertation study titled: First Generation Indian American Undergraduates’ Grief after Death of Grandparent(s) in India If you match or know of anyone else who matches the criteria listed below, please email me at [email protected] Participants must be: 1) Over the age of 18 2) First generation Indian Immigrants who were either born in India or the United States but have been part of the American school system since they were in Kindergarten 3) Have experienced grief during their current undergraduate experience/journey at ANY U.S. 4 year institution pertaining to the loss of at least one grandparent who lives in India And 4) who live either on/off campus, not at home, during their undergraduate tenure. Participation will aid in expanding research pertaining to counseling considerations with South Asians which is important due to the sparse amount of literature available specific to this population. Plus, participants will be given an Amazon gift card of $20 as incentive shortly after completing a brief audio recorded interview with me via phone. All data collected and reported will remain anonymous as per stated in the study's IRB. The IRB and questions will be provided in advance so that the participant will know exactly what to expect! Thank you SO much in advance for your time, energy, and support!
