Chijgamvasi UK 1995 meeting

AGM/Sammelan was held on 27 August 1995 in Luton. The Mandir was completed and Pranprtistha went ahead as planned. On this occasion we were well represented as Babubhai and Sushilaben, Dahyabhai and Indiraben Dayubhai and Hansaben, attended and took part in the ceremony of Pranpratistha. Reporting on this auspicious occasion Dayubhai said it was a day, which will be remembered by all who were present on the day for the rest of their lives.

The whole gam was transformed into a wave of happy faces. The procession through the village was a joy to watch. There were young boys and girls dancing to the tune of band and women and girls playing garba often joined by boys and men where open space came along the way. What a garba! Some times numbering as many as 500, all forming a BIG circle, which was a beautiful sight to watch. With chanting of mantras for three days and Havans made the whole atmosphere very pure and soothing to the mind. It was also a day when all associated with Gam paid a visit, all the teachers past and present came bringing back good old memories. To sum up Dayubhai said, “I have never seen so many happy faces working in harmony as a one BIG family. It was middle of April a least expected time for rain in our part of Gujarat but as the Shivling was lifted for positioning in its designated place in the Mondir, the heavens opened up and as soon as the brief ceremony was over, it stopped raining … a miracle !
