navnat bhagini utkarsh kendra

The monthly meeting of the bhagini kendra held on Thursday 23 September 1999, was a solemn and a serious one. Exactly a year ago the cruel hand of death suddenly snatched away rasikaben mehta , the founding chair-person of the kendra. time goes by and makes changes, but something never change. the memory of her spontaneous smile that made all smile will linger on. The kendra meeting was devoted to recital of devotional songs. and befitting to the occasion, dr. h j mehta arranged distribution of recorded cassette of ‘stavan’ to ladies present at the meeting.
 
 

Navnat Vanik Mahajan has negotiated with the management of the Sapphire Hotel, the free use of their generator during interruption of power supply in the Vadi.



 
 


 
 
 
 

By and large, the performance of the Mombasa Navnat Sportsmen at the 1999 Dar Sports Festival was not such as to sing and dance about. Mr. Prakash Modi believes "some win – some lose". It is the spirit in which games are played that matters. He therefore, on behalf of his family, in the loving memory of his mother, late Gangaben, presented a memento to all participating members. Hopefully, it will dispel a cloud of gloom and may bring some cheers at home. And now our apology to Prakashbhai. We failed to mention it in the first issue. To err is human. But there cannot be any excuse for missing it second time in spite of a reminder. We accept the responsibility and unreservedly tender our apologies.
