Pattni Connection Advisory Panel met up with the Parajiya Soni Parivar in
Vadodara (Baroda), Gujarat.
There is not a formal Parajiya Samaj in Vadodara, but the Parajiya Soni
families have created an informal group called Parajiya Soni Parivar. There are about 40 Parajiya families with
about 150 members in total, residing in and around Vadodara and a group of the
families try and meet on the first Sunday each month. There is no formal committee, but unity amongst
the families is excellent.
Guests from UK met representatives of the group and enjoyed hospitality at the
residences of Rahulbhai Pravinbhai Soni (Luhar) and
Sushilbhai Himatlal Rathod.
They are very pleased that the information available on PattniConnection.com is
very welcome and keeps everyone informed about the Pattni Community worldwide.
