Baylor University's Indian Subcontinent Student Association (ISSA) will hold its seventh annual culture and talent show at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 13, in Waco Hall.
The theme for the show is "Gateway to India" and provides a glimpse into the Indian culture through various dances and skits. This year's show will be different from previous years because it will focus more on the traditional aspect of Indian culture yet have a mixture of modern day Indian culture, said Puja Gandhi, president of ISSA.
"It has always been about the modern Western influenced culture," Gandhi said. "We're [ISSA] making an effort to get the facts about the traditional culture and bring it up to date."
The talent show also will serve as a competition between the Indian students that attend Baylor. There will also be an exhibition of Vietnamese and Mexican traditions.
Tickets for the show will be $5. Door prizes will be given, and refreshments will be served after the show.
The purpose of ISSA is to provide unity among Indian, Pakistani, Bangladesh and Sri Lankan students through service and cultural sharing, in the effort to serve Baylor and its community.
