Dhadak performers on display at Molloy College
By Anthony Vela
The South Asian Cultural Exchange (SACE) club at Molloy College put on its annual Dhadak show at the Madison Theatre on April 4. The club is an open forum for all students to come meet and interact with people and cultures different from their normal social circles. Molloy's Dhadak show is a cultural show where different colleges are invited to perform, sing, and dance while displaying their talent. All proceeds from the show went to UNICEF. This year's show was dedicated to a Molloy student who died in late 2013.
"Our show this year was extra special as a commemoration and tribute to our dear friend Monisha Jacob who passed away unexpectedly this past December. Many of us in SACE were an extension of Monisha's family throughout college, and we felt it would only be fitting to venerate the joy and happiness she brought to the club. We still watch last year's show to see the passion and energy with which she performed her dances as a model for new members. As the days pass and memories fade, our hearts only grow with love for her... praying she looks upon this and future shows," said Molloy student and Dhadak performer, Daisy Yohannan.
Even with the weeks of rehearsals and preparations, the energy of the crowd reception at the show helped to solidify the success of this program. Daisy states more colleges have already contacted her about joining for next year's show to make it far bigger and grander than this one.
