Toronto singer Shirsha Chakaroborty will be the lead performer this year.

Apart the colourfully decorated rickshaws, another unique feature of the India Day parade this year will be a 12-member military band led by Lt Col (Hon) Hari Panday. Panday is the only corporate honcho of Indian origin in Canada who dons the military uniform.

The day-long celebrations will begin with the singing of the National Anthem and patriotic songs. It will be followed by the downtown grand parade comprising VIPs and contingents of different Indian states.

After the parade winds up back at Yonge and Dundas Square, the high-voltage cultural show will unfold.

TORONTO: Panorama India, which is an independent umbrella organization of various cutural and social bodies of Indo-Canadians, has announced some brand-new initiatives to enlarge its imprint in the New Year, according to its chief Anu Srivastava.

Recognition of Ind0-Canadian organizations and their leaders at the major Panorama India events is one such initiative in the New Year.

Srivastava says she and her fellow board members “intend to lead Panorama India to the next level and work with dedication and sincerity in meeting its objectives,’’ in the New Year..

Giving out details of various past and future activities at the just concluded annual general meeting, she said Panorama India would keep up its critical role in furthering Indo-Canada relations by showcasing the Indian diaspora’s diversity and achievements in Canada by organizing various events.

Among the major events organized by Panorama India are the Indian Independence Day parade, the Republic Day celebrations and Diwali celebrations at Queen’s Park.

Looking at the accomplishments of the premier Indian organization in the year gone by, Anu Srivastava, who took over as Panorama India chairperson eight months ago, said, “As we look back upon 2014 it certainly has been a year of challenges, changes, transition and yet some of our biggest achievements too.

“Republic Day celebrations was on February 2nd and Panorama Idol was very successful with record number of participants. I would like to highlight that we were fortunate to honour the great accomplishments and PBD Award of our prominent community leader and philanthropist Vasu Chanchalani, sadly, he is no longer with us.’’

She said that in spite of the challenging transition eight months ago Panorama India organized India Day on August 2 at Mel Lastman Square. “This was perhaps the most successful India Day which had an all-inclusive appeal with the maximum number of community representation, dignitary gathering and vendor stalls.’’

About Diwali celebrations at Queen’s Park with the Premier on Oct 8, she thanked India’s “most ardent supporter Premier Kathleen Wynne… for playing an integral role in shaping Ontario’s racial and cultural diversity.’’

Speaking about the New Year, she announced that Panorama India is introducing “a brand new initiative to host and celebrate the recognitions of the community organizations and their leaders. This will be held for the first time on February 1, 2015, at India Republic Day.’’

HSBC is likely to Panorama India’s lead sponsor for India Republic Day celebrations. The bank will sponsor the community reception and recognition of one community organization for its services.

“Further Panorama India has re-initiated sponsorship discussions with ICICI Bank and State Bank of India which had been put on hold for almost 2 years. And we continue to work with CIBC for their ongoing support,’’ Anu Srivastva said.

She said, “Our goal is to build partnerships and provide a platform where diverse Indo-Canadians can showcase their talent and bridge Indo-Canadian relations through celebration of culture.’’

According to Srivastava, “During the past four months Panorama India has built relations with several other organizations like the Canada-India Foundation, the Indo Canada Chamber of Commerce, the Canada-India Friendship Group, the Rajasthan Association of North America (RANA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India, Web Malayalee, Natraj Gujarat Youth, the Agarwals Based in Canada, the Uttarakhand Association, the UPICA, the Telangana Association and many other socio-cultural organizations.’’

 DIWALI with Premier at Queen’s Park on October 8, 2014

TORONTO: Diwali’s official celebrations in Toronto this year came two weeks earlier than traditional celebrations as Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, her ministers, members of the provincial parliament (MPP) and Indian consul general Akhilesh Mishra joined the Indo-Canadian community in Diwali puja at Queen’s Park here this week. Organized by Panorama India, an umbrella organization of various Indo-Canadian associations, Diwali celebrations at Queen’s Park (the Ontario assembly) are an annual feature where the premier joins and greets the Indo-Canadian community on the occasion. After the lighting of traditional diyas (lamps) and the chanting of mantras and prayers by Hindu priests, the premier (equal to a chief minister in India) greeted the Indo-Canadian community on the occasion of the most important festival in Hindu, Sikh and Jain calendars. Kathleen said the Festival of Lights assumes even more significance in Canada because it comes right at the time when dark winter sets in the country.

Srivastava said the Festival of Lights symbolizes the victory of good over evil and Lord Rama’s return to his kingdom Ayodhya where people lit lamps in his welcome. “Hindus believe that the light from the earthen diya symbolizes the enlightenment within the individual,’’ she said. Srivastava also explained the significance of Diwali for Sikhs whose Sixth Guru, Har Gobindji, was released from captivity by Mughal Emperor Jehangir on this day, and for the Jains as Lord Mahavir attained Nirvana on this day. The Panorama India chief also thanked the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (CIBC) for sponsoring Diwali celebrations at Queen’s Park right from inception.

After the parade as the day-long cultural extravaganza began with the unfurling of the Indian flag, Premier Kathleen Wynne addressed the gathering. She asked if anyone in the gathering was there in India in 1947 when it got its independence. Many hands went up, and the Premier looked surprised as she greeted them on the happy occasion.

The Premier lauded India for its “remarkable’’ achievements since 1947. She said India and Canada shared many things, including cultural diversity, and hailed the one-million-strong Indo-Canadian community for its contribution to Canada’s diversity.

“Thank you for enriching Canada,’’ she said. Calling Canada-India relations a “thriving and vibrant connection,’’ the Premier said she wants to `strengthen and deepen’’ this connection.

On a jovial note, she thanked the Indo-Canadian community for bringing cricket to Canada in a big way.

In his speech, Indian high commissioner Admiral (Retd) Nirmal Verma described the recent elections in India as the world’s biggest democratic exercise in which even a lonely voter who lives deep inside the Gir Forest in Gujarat as a temple priest is catered to.

He recalled how US ships used to bring wheat to India for feeding its millions just after independence and how India has now become the world’s largest exporter of rice and the second largest exporter of wheat.

“We are proud of what we have achieved,’’ Admiral Verma said.

Calling India a “melting pot of cultures,’’ the high commissioner said India and Canada shared common bonds of rich cultural diversity.

He said the Indian diaspora has thrived in Canada because it is a melting pot like India and thanked Canada for accepting the Indian community as equal partners. The high commissioner ended his speech with `Jai Hind, Jai Canada’.

In his message to the Indo-Canadian community, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, “India has evolved into a vibrant, pluralistic democracy and is rising to global prominence.’’

The Canadian PM lauded the more than one million-strong Indo-Canadian community for its contribution to deepening ties between the two countries as he wished them “a memorable celebration’’ of the country’s 68th Independence Day.

Jason Kenny, minister for multiculturalism, said India Day celebrations were an occasion to “reflect upon the many ways in which Canadians of Indian heritage have contributed to Canadian society.’’

Kenney said Indo-Canadians have “enriched Canada with their traditions as well as with their skills, knowledge and talent.’’ He lauded the Indo-Canadians for “your commitment to the community, and to preserving and promoting Indian heritage and traditions.’’

The highlight of the day-long cultural extravaganza was the high-voltage bhangra by RDB’s lead singer Manj who set the stage on fire with hit numbers `Singh is Kinng’, Kade Saadi Gali Bhul Ke Vi Aya Karo, Tu Meri Dal Makhani, etc.

Just as Manj was busy belting out these hit numbers, Toronto mayor Rob Ford popped in. Manj spotted him and reached him and made him shake hips to bhangra beats.

“How exciting to see Mayor Rob Ford dance to the scintillating bhangra beats of Manj,’’ beamed Panorama India chairperson Anu Srivastava who called the mayor to the stage to say a few words to the community.

The mayor lauded the Indo-Canadians as hard working and family-oriented people and `guaranteed’ a quick response if the community approached him on any issue. Similar sentiments were shared earlier from the stage by another Toronto mayoral candidate John Tory.

The most exciting moment came when Indo-Canadian actor Vinay Virmani, whose film Dr Cabbie releases in September, appeared on the stage with Manj to sing and dance with him. Vinay, who was accompanied by Tia Bhatia, said his film is about a qualified doctor immigrant who is forced to take up cab driving in Toronto.

Away from the stage, nearly 30 vendors sold ethnic jewelry and treated visitors to Indian delicacies of biryani, idli, dosa, vada, chicken, corn, ice-cream,etc. Major banks had set up their kiosks.

The Telagana contingent was adjudged the best of the parade.

Said Panorama India Chair Anu Srivastava,“The most interesting feature of this year’s Parade was the community’s enthusiasm. Gujarat’s decorated rickshaw had 400 Gujarati people in the contingent who came in two busloads from Brampton, whereas Telangana had extremely enthusiastic crowds of 150 in the parade with their traditionally decorated hand pulled rickshaws.’’

Earlier in the morning welcoming the Premier and others at a VIP reception in the nearby Novotel Hotel, Srivastava, who took over Panorama India chief just a few weeks ago, said, “Taking the lead of the organization twelve weeks ago in the middle of the term is not an easy task. Apart from learning the intricacies inherent to the organization, I foresee an urgent need to profile the Panorama platform and its mandate of Educate, Celebrate and Collaborate.’’

She added, “Panorama India is truly an organization with a dedicated team of volunteers who have immense love for their home land India and want to celebrate India’s rich culture in their adopted homeland Canada. In doing so, Panorama’s efforts have deepened the bonds between the two countries and developed cordial relations”.

TORONTO: Indo-Canadian Unity in Diversity. That's was the theme of Panorama India-organized celebrations of India's 64th Republic Day on Sunday at the Pearson Convention Center in Brampton on Sunday January 27th.

The new Indian High Commissioner Admiral (Retd) Nirmal Verma, Consul General Preeti Saran, Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion and others dignitaries joined the local Indo-Canadian community in the celebrations.

The ceremonies began, with Jake Dheer introducing the guests to the audience and former Idol Contest Winners – Ferzana Bohra (2010), Subash Gandhi (2012 seniors) and Anusha Shivalingam (2010) singing patriotic songs. This was followed by 'Veena Symphony' from the Veenalyam School of Music and singing of the national anthems of India and Canada. Then the audiences were enthralled by the colourful invocation dance – Ganesha Vandana - by Menaka Thakkar Dance Company.

Jibanjit Tripathy, Chairperson of Panorama India, welcomed H.E. Admiral (Retd) Nirmal Kumar, the new High Commissioner of India to Canada and then outlined the three-fold mission of the Panorama: Educate, Celebrate and Collaborate. The great Pandit Ravi Shanker, who passed away, last year, was paid a befitting tribute on the overhead projector.

To emphasize the unity in diversity was the dance 'East meets West' – a fabulous presentation of nimble footed ballet and Indian dance union – choreographed by Atri Nundy and Debbie Wilson of the Sampradaya Dance Creations.

Addressing the gathering Consul General Preeti Saran offered her best wishes to the community on India's 64th republic day celebration, she congratulated Panorama India on staging the India Day Festival and introduced the High Commissioner.

The high commissioner praised the work of Panorama India and the Indian diaspora in Canada to promote Indian culture and keeping its traditions alive. He said India has the world's largest young population, and quoted President Pranab Mukherji that India has changed more in the last six decades than in the last six centuries. The High Commissioner acknowledged eminent Indo-Canadian entrepreneur and philanthropist Aditya Jha on his appointment as members of the Order of Canada.

The highlight of the day was the traditional Folk Dance Competition involving various Canadian dance schools competing for the best folk dance presentation. There was also a Children Drawing Competition, taking place at the same time.

The cultural extravaganza included performances by Kannada Sangha: Old is Gold, Ente Keralam – A bharathanatyam and Mohini Attam Fusion, Mix Bollywood Songs from Neeti Dream Dance, Yog Pranayam Demonstration by Patanjali Yog Peeth Canada, Odisha Festival Dance, Special Bhangra Dance, Bollywood dance, Lavani dance, and a host of crisp choreographed medleys. The grand finale was by Jadoo Entertainment.

The day-long ceremonies came to an end after the presentation of trophies and the announcement of Idol Contest winners, sponsored by State Bank of India (Canada). Sumana Dey was crowned 4th Panorama India's Idol in adult category while Anjana Rajendran was crowned in junior category. State Bank of India President & CEO Sunil Tandon, Panorama India chair Jibanjit Tripathy and co-chair Ramesh Bangalore gave away the awards.

This is also a Mela. Meena bazaar, handicrafts, ethnic outfits, costume jewellery, delicious Indian snacks, food and much more... were put up by large numbers of vendors. For the expatriates in GTA and surrounding areas it was a great Sunday outing with their family and friends. The day brought sweet memories and nostalgia of such ceremonies back home in India. Overall, the event was a resounding success. Panorama India would like to thank you all.

Panorama India was established in 1999 with the support of Consulate General of India as a non-profit umbrella organization with a goal to help unite all Indo-Canadian cultural associations and groups in the GTA and to project a common identity based on their Indian heritage and celebrate Unity in Diversity.
