Dubai, Sep 7: Thottam Parishioners, who are spread all over UAE, gathered here together to celebrate the ‘Nativity Feast’ on Friday 7, 2007 at the India Club premises from 12.30 pm onwards.
St. Anne Kutam Thottam, in short 'SAKATH' for the first time is celebrating this fest in UAE, as this group was formed only recently, in Dubai
The traditional 'Nove Jenvchem' program was held which consisted of lots of entertainment for both the young and the old. In the course of the event, children danced to the tune of Hindi and Konkani music. In addition to this, there were skits, jokes and spot prizes as part of the said event.
Guest artiste, Goan Jonny belted out some mind-blowing Konkani, English numbers to keep the crowd on their toes.
The inauguration of Thottam parishioners official website was the main event, as the website was symbolically inaugurated by Daijiworld.com editor-in-chief, Walter Nandalike. The website will be made available to the general public very soon, as it will carry news and information relating to Thottam Parish in order to keep its parishioners updated worldwide. The website is the brain-child of Ashiwin D'Souza.
Clarence Fernandes (Nanu Marol) compered the entire event and kept the crowd enthralled and entertained in Konkani.
