Fremont: The 2nd annual Hindu American Seva Charities (HASC) conference was held at on the 29 July at the White House. Present on the occasion were nearly 200 Hindu Americans, youth, military and community leaders of many faiths. The event "Impacting Change in America and Abroad," was co-sponsored by the White House Office of Faith Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam (the whole world is one family), the ancient vedic expression was the key principle and focus of the conference. President Barack Obama supported the effort to strengthen America through community service and sent greetings to all those attending.

Anju Bhargav is the founder of HASC. The objective of the conference was to engage youth who want to contribute to their American dream through public service.In order to promote this, HASC had organized an essay contest for participants to write about the role their Hindu faith plays in service and encouraged participants to provide specific ideas and plans to start a seva center in their community. The winners of this competition were honored with a medal at the White House briefing and provided opportunities to share their seva plan during the conference.
