Message from the webmaster/editor, Pranbhai C. Arjan Dhanak
I and ass. webmaster Vijay have been priviledged to serve Shree Parajia Pattni Samaj (SPPS), Mombasa for the past 12 years.

Small in size - Big Vision
Although one of the smaller samaj in membership, SPPS has made tremendous progress. Greater institutional self-sufficiency requires a long-term vision.
Under the dynamic leadership of Bharatbhai Bhimjibhai Dhanak, SPPS by building the PJ shopping centre has become self sufficient and put Mombasa Samaj on the Pattni world map.

Thank You
I take this opportunity to thank the outgoing chairman Bharatbhai and the committee for inviting me to the Chief Guest at their Diamond Jubiliee celebrations in 2012.

Mombasa Gathering!
We extend our best wishes to Bharatbhai as he steps down and look forward working with the new Chairman in the future.

We shall carry forward our discussion to organise the firstever World Gathering in Mombasa in 2018 of all Mombasa members currently living in the UK, USA, Canada, East & S. Africa
and other places.
