We would like to take this opportunity to thank the PPA Leicester Committee for the honour of inviting us as their guests to the Leicester Navratri. It was so nice to see so many
It was a real privilege for us to be called in the front of the hall by the President of the PPA Leicester and felt very proud and fortunate to be able to speak to the
Positive publicity by the
Elders and the respect for elders is a major component in our Indian culture. It was a delightful scene to see so many of our elders seating in the front row.
Our Youth Are Our Future.
In life children are our most valuable resource for our Samaj progress. The future of our Samaj is directly tied in to the kind of investments we make in our youths. PPA Leicester is doing a wonderful job in establishing such a foundation.
It was gratifying to see so many youths active, working hard as members of the committee, as the Mahila Mandal team, as volunteers, taking part in playing garba and participating in the Aarti competition.
The evening ended on a beautiful note, as young and old alike gather around and harmoniously to perform 108 Aartis. Team of Mahila Mandal members and volunteers lighted all 108 arti thali in minutes. Hall lights were switched off and the whole environment was baptized into the magical flames of the Mataji Aarti that created the divine atmosphere and spirituality. It was a sight not to be missed, the most memorable time of the evening when the aarti divas made the hall appear like stars floating in the dark. Finally, we all had prashad blessed by Ambe Maa.
With prashad of creamy saffrony sweets, fruit and nuts in hand and warmth in our heart, we left the hall at 1.00am with aching feet!
Our heartfelt thanks to all
Thank you PPA Leicester committee and your team of fantastic excellence.
Jai Ho - PPA Leicester - Jai Ho

It is indeed a special privilege and a great honour for me to be invited by the PPA Leicester to the Navratri Atham Garba. President Madhuben Dhanak’s personal invitation followed by the above e-mail was made few weeks ago. Unfortunately with so many death announcements over the last two weeks, there has been a delay in sending out this invitation to the community.
Our Pattni Connection website is nearly 5 years old. During this time, it has been my privilege to come to know hundreds of Pattni members. Many many members in the past, especially our youths have been in touch me. This will be an opportunity for all of us not just to meet but also to play Garba and Dandiya Raas and do Mataji Arti together. I am sure the highlight of evening will be the 108 diva arti. With the lights switched off and the whole public joined in this graceful Mataji arti the whole atmosphere will be electrifying. I look forward to meeting you all.
Lets all join together and sing to the Glory of Ambe Maa
Jai Ambe - Jai Mataji
