In his key note speech, Ramesh spoke highly about Shree Sanatan Mandir and Community Centre that has become one of the greatest prestigious Temples in the United Kingdom. The Mandir has contributed significantly for the welfare of the Hindu community in Leicester and promoting Hindu faith to the younger generation.

Rameshbhai was born Uganda in 1948 to the proud parents Mohanbhai and Kanchanben. Both Mohanbhai and Kanchanben were very religious and virtuous.


Rameshbhai’s father Mohanbhai was a well known personality in the Parajiya Pattni Soni Samaj as well as in the wider Hindu community. He worked tirelessly to build the Hindu Mandir in Masaka, Uganda. His community spirit awakened when he moved to UK and played a pivotal role to form the Parajiya Pattni Association (PPA). Further reading Memorial - Mohanbhai Nathoo Ghaghada, Leicester


Like father, like son, Rameshbhai followed his father’s footsteps to serve both the Hindu community and Parajiya Pattni Soni Samaj.


After completing his high school education in 1966 in Masaka, he left for Poona (now called Pune), India for further studies at the famous Wadia College.


Rameshbhai is now happily settled in Leicester, UK for the last 40 years. He has always put his family first, but would go out of his way to help others when asked, willingly and graciously.

He was the founder member when Parajiya Pattni Association National body in 1980s and served in the consultation committee when the PPA regional committees’ constitution was formed.


Rameshbhai Mohanlal Pattni has been duly and deservedly acknowledged for his good deeds by Shree Santan Mandir in Leicester.


I extend my Congratulations on being honoured by Shree Sanatan Mandir and wish Rameshbhai many more happy years ahead serving the community.
