Recently, the Hindi-Urdu Program welcomed teachers, students and friends to their Cultural Night of 2017. The event, which this year celebrated its seventh installment, is an opportunity to better understand the cultural richness of both India and Pakistan.
The event provided the opportunity to listen to poetry and traditional songs in both Hindi and Urdu, as well as enjoy popular dances from the different regions that make up these two rich cultures.
