    It is very good news that all Pangalites in Oman are united under one umbrella and working for the common cause of Pangalites in Oman and back home. It would have been better to Name the organization as "Oman Pangalites" or Oman United Pangalites" to represent the Pangalites of Oman than just Muscat. It is Just a suggestion. All the best.
