India Fest in Memphis
 There was a India Fest here in Memphis on Aug 29, where over 20,000 people turned out. It was a fest where all  Indians here in Memphis came together to exhibit the colours,culture,tradition,and flavours of India. The differnet Sanghas(groups) formed in Memphis here like Kannada Sangha,Tamil Sangha,Telugu Sangha etc all  put up stalls in the Fest to portray the culture, food, tradition of a particular state.
The Kannada Sangha here is called 'Taranga' . We too had put up a stall and had made items like Bisibele bath, curd rice, mysore pak, gulab jamoon, kesari bath, ambode, idly,sambhar, chutney. We made about 115 ambodes which were first sold out.
