A Warm Welcome to Shree Kantibhai Ghaghada to UK

"Atithi Devo Bhava"

Shree Kantibhai Ghaghada is currently visiting UK to attend a family wedding in Leicester and to also meet the PPA Leicester committee.


Kantibhai was also given a warm welcome by Pranbhai Dhanak, Editor / Webmaster of Pattni Connection when he visited his residence in London where various topics were discussed on Samaj matters over a lunch.

It was also agreed that we join forces to support the Samaj activities. Plans are underway to publish Jamnagar’s monthly publication Parajiya Prakash on the website. Kantibhai have arranged to let us have the Gujarati fonts that are compatible to upload the magazine. In order to ease the pressure on the website, Kantibhai have also agreed to engage translators in Jamnagar who can translate Parajiya Prakash in English and the website contents to Gujarati that they can published in both the media - Parajiya Prakash and the Pattni Connection website.
