SHREE PARAJIYA SONI SAMAJ
UAE Navratri 2010
Report by Haresh Dhakan
“Ae jee re ae ...Amari UAE maa kokdeek re , ane bhulo ne pad Bhagwaan
ae ae ane thaaje amaro me’maan, taaru Swarg re bhulau shaamla “
The above edited Duha (2 liners) gives a little flavour of the way Navratri was celebrated in the UAE.
A great deal of effort had been put into the planning by the committee members & the volunteers that attracted a great deal of interest by various companies to come forward to support and sponsor the event.
The first day of Navratri started at PH Dhakan’s residence on the 8th of October evening which was attended by many of our Samaj members and other devotees of Mataji. Evening began with the Stuti/Vandana of Mataji followed by the Aarti & Vishwambhari. Varyali Sharbat and Prasad were served that was contributed by the Samaj members.
The main event started at “Sudanese Club” in
Garbas was mostly sung in Gujarati and some in Hindi too that was played by 4 singers & musicians “Surtaal – Ramzat” Mini Satellite Orchestra. Young and old all joined in to dance to their melodious tunes. Each day was filled with some attraction & prizes for the Best Dress & Players in various categories to maintain the tempo in the crowd this added colours to the event.
Not to miss Khaana-Peena counter, mouth-watering dishes like Pav-Bhaji, Vada-Pav were in good demand & “Gola” (Ice-Crush) with “Malai /Dryfruit” was the winner as members reenergised themselves after playing Garbaa & Daabdiyaa raas.
Nine days of Navratri was like a big carnival at the Sudancese club. It followed by 10th day Dussera which was an unforgettable event as Samaj had arranged to cater hot Gaathiyaa & Jalebi prepared by caterers to serve all members attending the venue. The event concluded with the thanks giving ceremony & appreciation of all who contributed to make the event a big success.
With this I would l like to add my special thanks to the committee for organising such grand event. Ii is really worth mentioning that our UAE Samaj is probably the only one to have organised Navratri for all ten days.
I request all to kindly see our photo album of Navratri 2010 shortly be posted on the website & give your views & comments.
Till then let me wish everyone of you in advance a Happy Diwali & may God bless us ALL with best of Health, Joy & Prosperity with the forthcoming New Year. “Nutan Varsh Abhinandan”.
