Donate to Kerala Flood Relief

posted Sep 4, 2018, 10:04 AM by Tristatecsi CSI   [ updated Sep 4, 2018, 10:10 AM ]



CSI is deeply concerned about the victims of the Kerala floods. We encourage members of the Tri State area to unite and lend a hand to help these victims through any means possible. For those interested in donating to helping with the relief efforts, please donate through the CSI. All donations made through the CSI will be tax deductible.

CSI is working with Uma Sankar who used to reside in Owensboro as she and her team are working with others to help raise funds for the relief effort. If you are not familiar with the extent of damage or for more information about the relief efforts, please see this link

Please note that a check will be written on behalf of the Tri State community to the Kerala Chief Minister Fund. Please note that there are also misleading reports about the funds collected. We have verified that this is a completely safe way to help and these funds are being audited severely. Kerala is a beautiful state and it will take a lot of time and effort to restore the massive state-wide damage. Let us do our part and help! For any questions about the Chief Minister Fund, please feel free to contact us or email 
umakeithkyle@gmail.com directly. Thanks you in advance for your generous contribution. Together we CAN make a difference!


Those wishing to pay by check (to avoid credit card transaction costs), please contact us by sending an email to tristatecsi@gmail.com or by mailing the check directly to Cultural Society of India, PO Box 3491, Evansville, IN 47734-3491.

CSI Diwali Performance

posted Oct 4, 2017, 9:17 AM by Tristatecsi CSI   [ updated Oct 4, 2017, 12:07 PM ]

Hello Everyone, 

After a stupendous response to our Glow Garba 2017, it's time to gear up for our biggest event of the year - DIWALI 2017. It is going to be night of dance, music, food, fun and a lot of  masti.  We are inviting entries with talent in dancing, vocal, instrumental and /or any other skills. And as everyone gears up for their performances, here are few rules to keep in mind:

• Only members can participate. Group leaders/ choreographers are responsible to make sure that each participant is a paid member. 

• This year we will also be accepting singing and instrumental entries but each participant will be limited to 1 song. 

• We also recommend programs such as skits, plays, etc. in addition to the songs and dances, so we can illustrate our cultural diversity.

• Each member will be able to participate in maximum of 2 items (this includes dancing and singing) 

• No solo performances/ entries will be accepted, with the exception of singing or instruments. 

• Maximum duration of each item is 5 mins, except in unique situations with larger groups, depending on the nature of the program (for instance, it will be difficult to have skits, dramas    etc in less than 5 minutes). Each such scenario will need to be detailed so the committee can make an informed decision.

• All media mp3, wma or CDs for dance performances or background music should be legal copy to have great entertainment i.e. please purchase your music and/or download  legally. We are not accepting any low quality audio.

• The last day for submission of entries is Oct 15th 2017. All media mp3, wma or CDs for dance performances or background music should be submitted by   Oct 25th 2017. No EXCEPTIONS.  We will reserve the right to cancel a program if we do not receive the media by this date. 

• Only first 20 entries can be accommodated due to restriction of time. Entries will be reserved on first come first basis. So please send your entries on time. 

• Participants/Group Leaders wishing to particpate please fill up the following google form.

  Saha at  Amrita2004@gmail.com  (+1 402-881-2057). Please make sure that the email is marked to both of them. 

• Group leaders need to clearly mention their email ID and mobile number in the email. 

• CSI Events committee will decide the FINAL program flow.   

 Group leaders are responsible to make sure that all the above parameters are met by their team to ensure a smooth flow of event. 

Please let us know if you have any questions. 

We are looking forward to a year of memorable performances. 

 Thanks & Regards,

CSI Events Committee

Hello Friends
Following are the dates for our Future Programs

Graba 10/08/2016

Diwali  11/06/2016. Due to unforeseen circumstances we were forced to change the date of Diwali function. We are doing in Davies County high school due to two reasons.
 1. New Auditorium
2. We hope to get few sponsors for the function if we do it in Owensboro.

We will keep you updated

Thank you
