Parent Organization: University of Tennessee-Knoxville

"Manthan - Indian Students' Association" at the University of Tennessee. The purpose of the organization is to provide a platform for students of Indian origin to come together and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of India and to promote cultural understanding and exchange of ideas and views between the people of India and those of USA and other countries.

As is it's meaning, Manthan strives to extract the 'AMRIT' of cultural exchange between these two countries from the sea of happiness and despair. Manthan WELCOMES the new applicants to UTK, with an eagerness to assist them in all possible ways.
