It is a matter of pride that Mahamandal, Rajkot is completing 50 years of its formation providing social services to our community welfare. Parajiya Soni members are fortunate to have an institute with such long tenure of service to the community.

As a head of all the institutes - Federation - I am very happy to note that Mahamandal, Rajkot is also part of this big co-coordinating institute of Parajiya Soni Gnati. Mahamandal after joining the Federation had also recently arranged an executive meeting at their doorstep at Mohanbhai Hall.

We wish that Trustees with the help of community donors and supported by all Pattnis we can make our Pattni Community "Proud Pattni" in near future.

I congratulate Shri Dhirubhai Sagar, his team and all donors of Rajkot Mahamandal and wish them fast and prosperous development of institute.

Today when Rajkot Mahamandal is completing 50 years of its formation, it is time for all Parajiya Pattni institute worldwide to rejoice this historic occasion.


It was on 2nd / 3rd June 1962 when during a Samelan gathering at Bhanvad that a resolution was passed to form the Rajkot Mahamandal committee and a Gnati boarding for the Pattni students.  It was one great challenge that was taken up by the leaders.

We were fortunate to have had Shree Devayatbhai Soni and the Bhanvad committee whose dedication and hard work contributed to what the Mahamandal is today..


Rajkot’s 50 years journey has been a very progressive and the credit for its success is due to the generous donations by the community members. Rajkot located in mid-Gujarat serves its regional members and I wish all Committee members, donors and students all the very best and success for the future.

From: Editor / Webmaster - Pattni Connection


It gives me great pleasure to send the congratulations and good wishes to President Dhirubhai Sagar, Rajkot Mahamandal committee and Parajiya Pattni members on the occasion of Mahamandal’s Golden Jubilee.


Golden Jubilee celebrations are a tribute to the past 50 years. It is a symbol of gratitude to those who had laboured untiringly to make Mahamandal great.


Golden Jubilee is the time to honour those who served Rajkot Samaj as committee members, volunteers and donors for past 50 years.


Many of them will have fond memories lingering in their heart to share. Through the corridors of time, Rajkot Mahamandal with its long and luminous history has been hailed its success by the Parajiya Pattni community.


With you, we recall with thankful hearts, the work done by the early pioneers that led up to the foundation of Rajkot Mahamandal which has stood the test of time.


During the last fifty years, the Rajkot Mahamandal’s past committees have unstintingly given their support and selfless service to maintain the rich tradition of the Parajiya Pattni Soni community.


Thank You for giving me the Honour

I want to take this opportunity to thank the chief guest Harshdbhai Rana, President Dhirubhai Sagar and the Rajkot Mahamandal committee for recognizing Pattni Connection website and the honour which was bestowed on me in my absence at the Golden Jubilee celebrations..


It is such support that helps me stay motivated and inspire me on my journey to serve our proud Parajiya Pattni Soni worldwide community.


We pray God’s richest blessings, not only on this historic event, but also upon Rajkot Mahamandal’s devoted committee members in the years to come, so that the spirit of worldwide unity may inspire them to fresh endeavours in our community development.


Let us work together in unison.


The Association has completed its half century, and it too must proceed with renewed vigour to reach a century in its life. My best wishes and good luck to the Rajkot Mahamandal as it proceeds on its journey.
