Over the past two decades, there have been many sub-continent events like Independence day, Republic day displays, and events on Indian food, fashion and culture that Geraldine worked voluntarily and tirelessly to make young overseas Indian students feel at home in Melbourne and showcase and share the richness of cultural India in Melbourne.
