Agarwal said that the exhibition was being inaugurated on the occasion of Basant Panchami, which in itself is a very significant festival as it heralds the onset of spring. He hoped that the exhibition will create awareness about inter-faith harmony by portraying how Indians living in the US are following their religion and how the American society has become part and parcel of celebration of diversity.

Giving introduction about the initiative, Azua explained that the exhibition aims to create awareness about how Indians are keeping faith by following their religions all over the United States and how the American society has embraced this diversity of Indian religions by celebrating the various faiths alongside the Indians living in the United States.
