Ashokbhai then presented the Samaj with pictures of his parents Shree Parmanandbhai Dossa and his wife.  Parmanandbhai was the first Chairman of the Samaj upon inauguration.


Debate: Should we stay in Kenya?
The emcee of the evening Assistant Secretary Mr Rushay Mahesh Visaman, opened the floor to an open forum on two subjects. -Importance of education and whether or not should we live in Kenya or emigrate.


It was agreed that education is of importance and should not be ignored.

It was also discussed that Kenya was not a bad choice to stay but the youth who may see the scope abroad should be given a chance.

Summary of the past year’s Samaj Activities

The emcee briefly gave a history of the events that had happened in the year:

  • The Mahila Mandal participated in the Hindu Council of Kenya,
  • Mombasa county Master Chef competition, participated by Mrs Ushaben Ashok Ghagdha, Mrs Nitaben Bharat Dhanak, Mrs Tarunaben Janak Ghagdha & Mrs Reenaben Prakash Radia.
  • The youth had a successful darts tournament organized at the Mvita Tennis Club which was enjoyed by all members of the community, followed by a Koroga.
  • We had also participated in the Triveni celebration organized by our sister institution, Pattni Brotherhood in Nairobi as well as attended one of the Pattni World Federation sessions.
  • We had welcomed & honored members of Luton PPA at our Samaj.
  • We also were blessed to receive members of the Rajkot Samaj, Jamnagar Samaj, Dwarka Samaj & Dhirubhai Dhakan, the Federation President. All were cordially welcomed and honored.
  • Our volunteers actively participated in the Suraksha exercise organized by the Hindu Council of Kenya during the March national general elections as well as during this year’s Navratri festival again organized by the Hindu Council of Kenya, Mombasa.

Past chairman of the Samaj Mr Amratlal Hiralal Visaman who was unable to attend the function due to ill health problems, sent his greetings to all members of the Samaj and to the Parajiya Pattni families worldwide.
