Dear Members,

Once again ‘Ma Durga’ is coming home to us and we are all eagerly waiting for the commencement of the auspicious festival. It is a celebration of togetherness, colour, love, fulfilment and peace. The festive season starts with welcoming Lord Ganesh and then follows the Sarodiya Navratri dedicated to Mother Goddess Durga followed by Diwali, Christmas, New Year and many more. On behalf of our General Committee Members, we wish all of you a Very Happy Festive Season.
