Thank you all who attended our get together on Sat 25 July 2015. It was an amazing and memorable evening – special thanks to Shri mayank Jaiswalji who travelled 7-8 hour from Swan Hill along with his 3 young kids, Shri Abhishek Dube ji who also travelled 4 hours from Parkes. Some new families joined us on the day.
No description will be complete without any mention of Shri Satish Dattaji and Rashmi Datta ji who gave colour and sound to this Milan. Both travelled 7-8 hours from Melbourne and presented their soulful lok sangeet and vivah geet in Bhojpuri and Maithili (despite a tragic incidence).
Shri Sushant Goelji and Ejaz Hussain alongwith their partners made this event happen with fanfare and elegance. Their preparation really won our appreciation – with burst of jokes, old poem and poetry and some instant light comments on our inadvertent stupidity.
Wish you all a nice spring in Canberra. We will meet on the last Sunday of October for Diwali Milan. Please get ready for our get together with delicious Bihari food – yes all we can imagine. When: Sun 26 October 2014Where: Lennox Gardens, Flynn Drive, Yarralumla Time: 11:30 AM – 02:30 PM
