How we would like to witness some of these colorful festivals and witness some of the dances, instruments and talents in our home town. We wish the City authorities publish these kind of events weeks or months ahead thru regular Bulletins so that we can always match our holidays to suit with these auspicious events and occasions.

All these folklores and dances are national treasures. They bring back the history of Mahabharatha and enable communities gather together and compete with each other. Competitions are good because they allow us to cooperate with each other and collaborate with one another with a view to learn and improve in all that we strive to do for the benefit of our community and our country.

It is our sincere hope that we shall be able to spend a great deal of our retirement life in our home town so that we can share all the joys of the community displayed thru periodic festivals, rituals and celebrations.

Music and entertainment in India is an industry by itself thru which millions of people survive by cheering up the community and bringing joy to the world of entertainment.

Goonjne Lagti Hai......
