Thank you – Sharad Milan in Canberra on Sat 25 July

litti2Thank 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.


In brief, the evening was well spent, food was excellent and gathering was well attended. But we missed one of our strongest supporters and a devout attendee family of Dr Bijoy Varma who fell seriously sick.  We pray for his speedy recovery. 




Experiencing extreme cold in Canberra – hope you are looking for some great get together. Date and venue for our next milan is finalised.

Warm your heart with beautiful songs from our local and interstate artists. Lok sangeet in Bhojpuri, Maithili and Magahi will be presented by our VIC Chapter member couple, Mrs Rashmi and Mr Satish Datta ji. Our local members are also practising for their best.

Believe it or not, it is going to be an excellent musical and playful evening, not to be missed.

Date: Saturday 25 July 2015
Venue: Ainslie
Time: 4 pm – 7:30 pm

Please do not forget to mark you calendar now. Artists need your active participation and appreciation and you – some surprises.
