Our Cr. Poonam and Tr. Vishal had Ganeshji residing in their home for all the ten days of Ganpati. They invited the entire Surat Metro Table and Circle Family for the visarjan on 18th September to take place from their home. Not all but a few of us could attend it but it was a fun filled experience for all, as a small puja and aarti were conducted at their home when the tablers, circlers and twinklers gathered at their place. Cr. Poonam took care that all had taken Ganpati Bappa’s Prasad and then all headed forward for the visarjan at the nearby riverbank. All sang Bappa Moriya songs in full zeal and enthusiasm and also prayed for his next visit very soon.

Project 1 – Believe in yourselves that wishes do come true –

175 children were asked for their wishes which they wanted to be fulfilled if given a 100 Rs. Note, this was done almost one week before the project & then they wrote their wishes on a piece of paper…These were then bought & given to them. Each gift was personalised with a hand written note. The wishes varied from remote control car with colors of their choice, dolls, watches, bikes, drawing kits, tennis rackets , cricket kits, ball, fm radio, videogame, coloring books, pencils, story books etc.

The Ganesh Festival is celebrated for 10 days starting from Ganesha Chaturthi , the birthday (rebirth) of god Ganesha, and ending up with Ganesh Visarjan.

One of the tale tells of about the race held between the brothers- Kartikeya and Ganesh to complete three rounds of the earth first , for taking up as the leader of gods or Ganaadhipati .Kartikeya seated on a peacock as his vehicle and ganesh on a rat started off for the test. Ganesh reverently paid obeisance to his parents and went around them three times and thus completed the test before Kartikeya. The logic given was that “my parents pervade the whole universe and going around them, is more than going round the earth.”he thus came to be known as ganadhipati or Ganapati.

This became the perception of our Ganpati fellowship “BHAAG MUSHAK BHAAG” this year.
On early Sunday morning of 15th ,September the Trs and Crs gathered at my place for the same. All were acknowledged with a Ganesha Pin. The dress code was anything in Orange resembling to that of Lord Ganesha. All were distributed into 5 teams consisting of 2 Trs and a Cr. Even twinklers were also included in few of them.

The rules of the event were explained as under:
Ø Each team was provided with 10 clue cards explaining characteristics of any of the 10 41ers.
Ø The team had to guess the 41er and reach their home.
Ø On their visit to 41er’s home they had to greet them, had a snap of the whole team with them and collect a piece of puzzle from them.
Ø First piece of puzzle was provided to the team during the flag off of their car and the Last ie 12th piece was to be collected at the concluding point.
Ø Once the team had collected all the 12 pieces of puzzle, they had to complete the puzzle and submit it.
Ø The team which completed the task first was the winner.

The event turned out to be more thrilling and fun-filled than imagined during the making of it. The enthusiasm and involvement of all the 41ers was high throughout the event and even after.Even all the participating Trs and Crs felt the same. It also turned out to be a perfect blend of team effort, jelling between Trs and Crs including 41ers.

The culmination of the event was followed by birthday celebration of SLC72 CP Cr.Monica Rathore and First man of SLC72 Tr.Bhavesh Rathore who shared the same date followed by breakfast wherein all 41ers, Trs, Crs and Tws enjoyed together.

Maggie – bas 2 min – HR CPLC46

The hr this time was again something with a different beat. Matching the steps with the nationals it was a two min talk but with a showcase of the hidden talent. Aditi Dhelia was the speaker this time and she being a
CA, opened and shared her inputs about the profession. What is an Assessee, how to pay tax and ways of paying taxes, heads of income etc were thrown light upon. The house of Lc 46 witnessed and admired a brief of her talent.
Very informative yet a small 2 min helped her to overcome the hitch to speak infront of a large group. As the hr convenor called it-It was a yummy maggie hot and sweet. Written by
