Friday 2nd September 2016 – Tusharbhai (OAUK President) along with other EC members Rexbhai, Ashokbhai, Nileshbahi, Dhirubhai, Saileshbhai, Sudhirbhai, Aswinbhai Babulal, Ashwinbhai Jethalal, Mradulaben, Varshaben, Rekhaben, Bhavniben and Ashishbhai – visited South Area Paryushan festivities.

Pareshbhai (South Area Chairperson and EC Member) warmly welcomed all guests and the evening was filled with music and songs performed by children and peaceful aarti.

Tusharbhai spoke briefly about the many different events and initiatives which are now being implemented in our Association, emphasising on the Directory verification process which is now underway in all Areas and the focus on Youth activities (not just sports) as a means of engaging our young Oshwals to take part in our Community activities as well as to become the next leaders of our Association.

Tusharbhai and Pareshbhai warmly welcomed and thanked members of the Oshwal Walkers Group (OWG), and Laxmichandbhai  from the OWG gave a short summary of the history of the OWG right from the first walk from Jamnagar to Palitana to raise funds for our Derasar in Potters Bar. The OWG also presented a donation to OAUK for £20,000 to go towards property for South Area.

Well done to the children you lead the prayer during the evening, including 6 year old Kush Kaushik Shah, 7 year old Riya Shah, 11 year old Anish Anil Shah.
