Shree Pranbhai addressing the Samaj

Shree Pranbhai addressing the Samaj members said that the computer literacy is very important skill to possess. The internet has revolutionized the computer and communications world like nothing before. Its influence reaches not only to the technical fields of computer communications but throughout the society. Today, the internet technology is offering our community an ever-greater array of services, and getting more and more deeply involved in our lives. It offers an opportunity for increasing communication between Pattni members and uniting Soni Samaj worldwide.


Recently, the family of late Shree Maganbhai Odhavjibhai Vaya (Nanduriwara) donated computers to our Samaj. The computer classes in our Samaj have now become extremely useful to communicate and to send and receive the latest Pattni Samaj national and international news.

Shree Kantibhai Ghaghada addressing the Samaj

Today is the time for unity and for that effect; the Federation is playing a vital role in uniting Pattni Soni Samaj. While addressing the Samaj members, President Shree Kantibhai Ghaghada briefed members of the Samaj activities. He added that although Pattni members are spread all around the world and thanks to the Pattni Connection website, we have all come much closer. He congratulated Shree Pranbhai Dhanak for the wonderful work done on the Pattni Connection website.
