If I keep on listing, That itself, may come down to 1000's of pages...so let me stop here...
Today,Saturday Jan 31st,2009, I had such a Wonderful Experience, Entertainment, A kind of Revision of Geography[Which I had studied in my School Days were back to memories]. Well, Today, Saraswathi Pooja was Organised in our RBI Officer's Colony. There were some Cultural Programmes organised by committee members and were implemented by some of the assistants, who taught songs, dance, and so on!!
The Best part of it, Which I liked is, the way they organize...I never felt loneliness [ Since I'm 4m Blore and was there for 18yrs.b4 I used to miss my Blore a lot..even now, I miss Blore and my Friends a lot]...
But after few days, after experiencing and knowing much better about our colony, I consider RBI Officer's Qrts, Gokuldham as Second home of my Life!! each one of the member[irrespective of age factor] are extremely friendly & helpful to each other..We are famously called as RBI Family[I too Mean it and Feel the same 4m the Depth of My Heart!!].
After morning pooja, there was Game organized specially for Ladies..Its Breaking the Handi!!That was really amazing..Person will be blindfolded and will be given a stick. she wil lbe made to stand bit far from the handi and should go near to handi and break it..But many couldnt do it..One aunt, she succcessfully won in Breaking the Handi!!
What's the funny matter is, whenever, any lady used to go to break handi, her respective hubby used to chase them 4m front and used to bend their heads[so that she could hit on his head..but other's[being volunteers] used to pull them aside..I enjoyed a lot!!
Well, after this, all enjoyed Lunch..menu was Dal Kichdi, Rice Kheer, Bonda, Some Sabji's.....
Well evening came, was time for cultural programmes..
Idol of Saraswathi Matha, was too good..
या ब्रह्मर्चुथा शंकर प्रब्रुथिभीही देवैही सदा पूजिता। सा माम पथु सरस्वती भगवथि निशेषजाड्यापहा।।
The above shloka is of Goddess, Saraswathi.
[I didn't get Sanskrit fonts...So its in Hindi!!]
Well, after this, there was Invocation and few cultural programmes..Even Ladies also participated in Dance...Even it was tooo gud!! The Overall theme of 2day's, dance was all about Whole India, Starting 4m Kashmir to Kanyakumari [Covering the traditions of East To West & North To South]..Even Devotional songs, Patriotic Songs, Film Songs of all languages were sung..
Programme was organised in such a manner that, none of the member, wished to leave that place for dinner, even after the completion of the programme....But, forcefully, had to go for dinner....Again, enjoyed the Dishes...
Congratulating all participants, were back home, saying, फिर मिलेंगे चलते चलते.....
Drawing competiton was organized...Those who won the prize, their talents were exhibited and even Wall Magazine[In which few articles, poems were exhibited]। In Wall Magazine, one of the Poem of mine, Mother's Hands was also exhibited!! I was very much excited to see my poem!!
Well, This was all about 31st Jan,2009!! A Most Wonderful Day of Jan2009!! Jan 2009 Successfully completed with the awesome celebration of Saraswathi Pooja on the occasion of Basantha Panchami!!
Hatts of to all Committee Members as well for President of our Colony, Retd.Lt.Giridhari Lal & also to all who joined hands to make this day and make the last day of Jan2009 a Grand Success!!
