The Hindu festivals are no longer restricted to India alone. They are being celebrated off-shores as well and America is one nation with a huge number of Indian settlers.
 
Every year, the NRIs celebrate Dasara, Deepavali, and Ganesh Chaturthi in a grand way and this year is no exception. The Teluguites in Atlanta, USA celebrated Deepavali. Over 1,500 Telugu families participated in this event organized by Atlanta Telugu Association. Indian consulate general Swathi Kulkarni attended the event as the chief guest.
