A glamourous event infused with the allure of India and the charm of Sri Lanka await guests on June 9, 2012 at the Grand Ballroom of Taj Samudra. The event themed ‘Sthree Utsav 2012′ – A Celebration for Women – is organised by the Sri Lanka India Society to foster camaraderie among the Sri Lankan and the Indian community. Ashok K Kantha, High Commissioner for India in Sri Lanka and the patron of the Sri Lanka India Society will be gracing the event as the chief guest.
A number of performances have been lined up for the upcoming evening to entertain the attending guests. The line up includes choreographed dances fused with Sri Lankan and Indian cultural elements, fashion shows that touch on the latest fashions, make up shows, a performance by the popular percussion band Nadro and much more.
“We are the oldest friendship society in Sri Lanka with a history of more than 50 years,” said Kandiah Neelakandan, Attorney-at-Law/ Notary Public and the President of the Sri Lanka India Society. “We are always searching for ways to foster friendship between the two communities – India and Sri Lanka. We visualise ‘Sthree Utsav 2012′ as an event that will help to increase interaction and create new friendships among members and other guests that will attend the event.”
“We expect more than 300 people to attend this event, which will be a combination of fashion, fusion and glamour. We have done a host of events that include cricket matches and dinners, but this will be something unique and different,” said T S Prakash, General Manager of Revlon who is also the Project Chairman of the Event and an executive committee member of The Sri Lanka India Society, relaying his sentiments about the upcoming event.
“This is one of the most sought after events by the members and this year is going to be extremely special because of the line up of events,” said Praveen Viswakumaran, Country Manager of Life Sciences and executive committee member of The Sri Lanka India Society. “Sthree Utsav 2012 will likely create history due to the glamour and the hype created by the management and the organising committee of the event.”
Therefore, ‘Sthree Utsav 2012′ with the main sponsorship of United Colors of Benetton and Jewel Laurel will be another vibrant addition to their long list of activities that have entertained the members, their families and also their friends for many years.
