About the event
What is NBT India Day?
The NBT India Independence Day program began with the inspiration from Mr. Pete Clark Principal of North Brunswick High School. He invited community members in 2007 to find a way to mark India’s Independence Day and acknowledge the culture of the growing Indian American community in Central Jersey. With support from the Board of Education and Mr. Clark 4-H Indian Langoor Club along with volunteers from the local community held the first event in Linwood Middle School in 2007.
The celebration marks an important event in world history, brings to life the culture and history of India and highlights India’s cultural connections with United States and the world. A wide range of activities are planned to make this event a great learning experience for all participants and a spectacular event for all attendees.
Today, NBT India Day, a service project of Agraj Seva Kendra, a tax exempt nonprofit organization in partnership with the North Brunswick Township High School involves over a hundred youth and adult volunteers join hands to bring this unique event focused on the history of India to the community.
