Bolly-ween (Bollywood + Halloween) 2014

ISAC, along with Hindu Yuva, is hosting the biggest social event of this year on Friday November 14th, starting at 10pm. Don’t miss out on this amazing stress-free event and catch up with your friends you might have(?)(and/or make new ones) but don’t see them anymore. There will be fun activities and delicious Indian dinner (I was just made aware that there will be lots of sweets for everyone. Which ones you might ask? Gulab Jamun? Rasgulla? Gajar ka Halwa? Come find out this Friday night). Tickets are selling out quickly. Buy your ticket soon before the event is sold out.

[EDIT : Event is FREE]
