We need to preserve our great history for the benefit of our future generation.
We must ask three questions:
Where have we come from?
Where are we at this instance?
Where do we want to go from here?
We have rich history and our cultural heritage. Let us all work to ensure that we preserve our language and culture and history amongst the younger generation and many future generations
Our main goal is to leave a good and solid foundation for our future generation to build upon.
We must try to preserve our Parajiya Pattni history
President, Jamnagar Samaj
You have excellently collected the history of Parajiya Pattnis who migrated from of India. Each and every community must remember their past and make path for future. We must try to preserve this history fact in a book form or in electronic shape. Generation of today will not face the situation like those days when our past people had travelled in boat for 10/15 days to reach destination.
Those Pattni members who went to Gulf they faced severe hardship. There was no electricity and people used to sleep at sandy beach at night. As a result of their sacrifice and difficulties, our new generation is now enjoying the fruit.
Late Shri Devayatbhai Soni had written so many articles for social improvement, story, poems and published the same in "Parajiya Prakash" past 4 decades. We at the Federation level collected all the materials from old issue of "Parajiya Prakash" and decided to publish two books, one containing community article/stories/poems and second for social article/stories/poems etc.
For this work some of donors from USE have offered the required amount. By publishing this literatures Federation will pay homage to dedication of Shri Devayatbhai towards our community. Book work is in progress and in short time will be released for community.
