South Asian brought back

Enjoying delicious dhokla while learning the importance of South Asian culture, there is no better way to start your Tuesday morning. Grosse Pointe South’s South Asian Club has been brought back by Omar Squiddiqui ’25 and Luca Parlangeli ’25.

Parlangeli sees this club as an opportunity for friends to be made and old friends to connect over the culture of South Asia.

“(Siddiqui) and I decided to begin the club because we knew that it had gone on in the past and we decided it was important to keep the club going to support the learning of South Asian culture,” Parlangeli said. “ The thing I enjoy most about the club is being able to learn a new culture and being able to appreciate it well among friends.”

The food is a big part of the club and has attracted many new members, such as Josh Koch ’25. Koch, who said he enjoys the surprises they get each week.

“My favorite part of the South Asian club is the food (Siddiqui) brings,” Koch said “Sometimes it’s candy or some delicious South Asian food his mom made.”

Beyond the highly anticipated and appreciated food, each meeting consists of playing a Kahoot where members become more educated with the culture along with competing for prizes. Parlangeli said he would like to continue to spread the culture by not only playing Kahoot, but through possible events and field trips.

“I would like for our club to expand in members firstly, then possibly organize events through the school to spread the culture farther,” Parlangeli said.

Koch agreed that going to visit South Asian culture events could help many of the members to learn more about what their club truly represents..

“One thing I hope to see from the club is some field trips to some South Asian or cultural events so that I can better understand the club,” Koch said.

Vice President Jack Finazzo ’25 said he sees this club as a great opportunity to meet new friends and bond over South Asian culture. He believes he has built great friendships through the club.

“My favorite part is the vast amount of information we are given through the South Asian club, along with the entertainment and relationships made by the club leaders and group members as well,” Finazzo said.
