It was certainly not an easy task specially to arrange Funds in such difficult times but some how Parajiyas managed getting best of Navratri packed with ALL the best ingredients with their dedication.


Let me take you all to the Navratri event, a TEN nights from 22nd September to 1st October, 2009 at the Sudanese Club again with the music of Craze Makers from India a 16 member electrifying troupe managed by Mr Bakul Pandya & Hemal Shah and the renowned singers Chetan Rana, Sheetal Naik & Dharna Pahwa singing Garba & songs in Gujarati & Hindi.


I too had witnessed few times to the beautifully decorated arena of the Sudanese club where all the amenities were taken care for the Samaj members to enjoy every moment during the Navratri festival. It was a well managed & systematically handled by the management from the gates for entry without creating any nuisances for the road, with seating for the people who would enjoy watching their siblings or kids engrossed with "RAAS - GARBA" which also was illuminated with halogens & speakers reaching one & all to the rhythm of daandiya & music.


Every night there were competitions for the Best Dressed, Best Player in each category of Children as well as adults, this not only also encouraged the members to participate whole heartedly but with full energy giving their best in the event obviously cannot undermine the best musical troupe of 16 members & the singers entertaining the crowd with their vocal talents.


Festival means also EATS & there were also stalls serving HOT snacks PAV-WADA, PAV-BHAJI, cold & hot beverages (CHAAI-THANDAA) & not to miss the special stall for Baraf ka Gola (Ice-candy) which was one of the highlights during the festival.
