Carol Stream, IL: Glenbard North High School’s Indian Student Association (ISA) hosted its seventh annual India Night. The show – which is one of the largest high school cultural shows in all of Illinois – took place at Glenbard North High School on Friday (Feb. 27) and Saturday (Feb. 28).
The theme for India Night 2015 was “A Suitable Ladka” which told the story of a mother trying to find the right boy for her daughter to marry. A palpable tension was present throughout the script as tradition and modernity clashed. In the end, however, a beautiful love story emerged that demonstrated that you don’t have to choose one over the other.
“I couldn’t be more proud of the ISA – each year the students continue to impress me more and more with their hard work and dedication,” said Kevin Erday, advisor of the ISA. “This is more than just a student association – it’s a family, and we all love each other and want the show to be a success. This experience is so worthwhile and rewarding because of the relationships we create and foster here. We can’t wait to do it all again next year.”
“ISA not only brings students together, it brings people together. The show is the product of months of students’ hard work in conjunction with the help of alumni, friends, and family. ISA creates a community of support that exceeds a two night show and it teaches students pride and the confidence to challenge things they originally thought impossible.” said by Allyson Feierberg.
“ISA is so much more than just a school organization or a show, it is a family. This is shown by all the alumni who return year after year to help prepare for and watch the show. ISA has always put people first and show second, and I think this is what makes the difference. This is why students put so much of themselves into ISA, and this is what allows us to put on such a spectacular show year after year.” said by Antonina Benigno.

“Most People think the Glenbard North India Night show limits its members to the dancing they do on stage. But the true outcome isn’t just the unique cultural show the audience gets to witness; rather, it is the sense of responsibility, dedication, and leadership that each member develops.” said by -Vivek Patel
“I joined ISA as a medium to make friends and get involved in the school. After 4-5 months of being part of this wonderful organization I didn’t make friends, but found myself a new family. ISA is an organization that unifies all different groups of students into a canopy of beautiful Indian culture. ISA helped me to break away from the shell I was concealing myself in, and carved me into a better individual.” said by Shrey Maheshwari
