  1. that’s really great – makes a lot of sense too with the large indian population (though i wish this was happening on the newark campus)… i wonder will there be bhangra dance classes offered?

  2. How does one register for the summer camp? Will the concert be open to the public or does one need to pre-register?

    Thanks so much.
