It was an exclusive evening which began with the cocktail event, mingling with the guests and affiliates, and honoring the guests.
The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce Associates received the guests with warm welcome, as they entered the hall with lighted lamps in the dim room, with mesmerizing music by Ram Tasildar, and his exclusive band of talented musicians from India, awakening the spirit of Diwali.
The Las Vegas Chamber of Commerce was founded in August 2009 with an objective to improve the image of the Indian Community in Las Vegas. They started with the idea that Indians need to be a part of the mainstream. Indians did not seem to be recognized in Las Vegas for what they have achieved. There was the need to establish an identity and partnership with the mainstream, and enhance the cultural connotation including the traditional costumes, and food and assimilate that with the mainstream. Help our members promote our websites, directory, to be easily accessible to the American World.
The ultimate goal of the CCLV is to invite different ethnic Indian communities and bring unity among the ethnic Indians. In the name of music, they were fortunate to have a diversified crowd with some physicians and judges, including political leaders like the congressman.
They are focused on empowering the Indians in Las Vegas, recognizing professionals, excel in the community, and seek appointments at State and Local levels. Among other ventures, they have been providing for the homeless, and the needy schools, and donating turkeys to the underprivileged during ‘Thanksgiving’. It was a pleasure to speak to Rita Vaswani who plays an active role with the Chamber of Commerce, Las Vegas and who led Vasu Pawar of NRIpress through this interview process. Rita Vaswani is the Vice President at the Nevada State Bank and wants to work on a large scale to recognize Indians in Las Vegas.
Ram Tasildar and his Band from India, kept the crown engaged. Dipti Shah did an awesome job as a female vocalist. Dipti started singing as a hobby and does want to take the music seriously. Ram Tasildar and his Band came with the objective to keep the crown engaged and have the dance floor committed from start to finish. Ram Tasildar, his orchestra and Dipti Shah stunned the crowd with their music. Among the guests were Dr. Jay Shah and Mrs. Usha Shah from Los Angeles who did their part of sharing their warmth with the invited guests.
