A Celebration of Kashmir
its Culture, Cuisine, Art and Craft
'Preserve Our Heritage' jointly with Kashmir Hindu Foundation, Inc will be celebrating Kashmir and diverse global culture on December 7th, 2013 "With the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs, the Cultural Affairs Council, the Mayor, and the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners." In a historic moment for Kashmiri Hindu community, the Mayor of the great city of North Miami presented proclamation for "Kashmiri Hindu Heritage Day" last year in recognition of the resilience of Kashmiri Hindus who were displaced from their homeland two decades ago.
The Purpose of this event is to create Unity in diversity with an understanding and awareness of the traditional Hindu style of Kashmiri Culture, art and cuisine. It will also provide an opportunity to the world to learn and experience the Hindu culture of Kashmir through visual voyage to Kashmir.
This event will provide a window to the aesthetically charming valley of Kashmir, not only for Indians living in USA but also to the American public in general. Your participation and presence on this occasion is earnestly requested. As proud Kashmiri Hindus, let us make this event a resounding success.

Kashmiri Pandit 'Batta- Battni Fashion Show'
Fashion show by seven couples representing seven bridges in Srinagar, each one of them having its own importance and history. These bridges remind us of the saga and the architecture of that time. All these bridges have been constructed after 14th century when Srinagar began to expand its territory. These bridges or "Kadals" in Kashmiri are an epitome to ascetic art of Kashmir.
