Connecting People Abroad
You will appreciate that we have one association in Australia and New Zealand, despite enormous potential of leadership within the community. The members help each other to realise their dreams and relish their successes in regular get togethers.
Almost all chapters celebrate major festivals and organise at least 3 get togethers - Holi Milan, Sharad Milan and Diwali Milan. It helps us showcase and promote the socio-cultural and linguistic heritage among youngsters and second generation expatriates.
We are here to help - our members and other community members by facilitating better communication and networking. We promote friendship and respect for each other among members, and ensure smooth settlement and assimilation of new immigrants.
Glad to see this page. Didn't know anything of this sort existed. Was missing home more than on other days during diwali and chhath and that is how found this page but couldn't find anything about chhath celebration, kind of shocked.
It was an enjoyable gathering (Holi Milan 2012 in Canberra). Gouri and I enjoyed very much. Also met our old friends and made new friends. From now, we will be regular to all the events.
Its really great to see the community for Bihar and Jharkhand, the place which is my origin.....I love my place of forefathers and would like to know more about it and love to interact with the friends of that place......
I didn't had any idea about BJSM until yesterday. I was just getting bored at work, and decided to find out if there was any social group of biharis or jhakhandis in NZ, and I came across this website. Thank you for getting in touch with me so fast. And it was a big surprise for me when I saw an email from Aratiji today inviting me to the holi get together the week after. I am definitely going to meet them.
Heartily congratulations to you and to all the BJSM team residing in Australia and New Zealand for doing such a wonderful job in uniting our NRBs and NRJs and putting them under one umbrella in such a manner that they feel like being at home and not missing even a single festive of Bihar and Jharkhand.
Hi, I was just browsing internet like always knowing the root of Bihar and Biharis all across the globe and I am so happy to see we guys united despite being in Australia. You guys rock. Just a suggestion please have a separate column on the site for counselling or to pioneering those students heading to Australia for studies. Thanks again!!
