"Namaste all:
As many of youmay have noticedmy silence....


Well matter of fact I was away to Trinidad and Tobago for a friend's son's Graduation in Medicine. It was great pleasure to visit Trinidad. I was at Port Of Spain

We have three Prajapati families in Trinidad residing at City called SAN FERNANDO. They are doing very well. I know two families. Shree Ranjitbhai Thakorbhai Mistry of SaakI India. The other brothers are Vinodbhai and Deepakbhai.

Over here I was amazed to find that a third or fourth generation of Hindus celebrating all Hindu religious festival days. And there were many mandir as well. The most beautiful mandir I saw was at town called Waterloo. This mandir is built approximately 1000 yards out in the sea. This is a Shiv mandir. When we went to this mandir, Bhajans were being sung by four girls aged 15 to 17 years. They were singing in Hindi. They were great. I was extremely impressed of their talent and professionalism. As we know that in Trinidad they all speak only English. Thus they were reading the Bhajans from English transcript.

I was been told that they celebrate nine days of Diwali festival and every house has no less than 300 divas for Nine days. Also they celebrate RAM LILA.

I will put some pictures of this marvelousShiv mandir on internet.

Any way I am back now and you will begin to receive Email again from me. So watch out be ready to receive the messages.

Good News of Prajapati Spirit: The three Prajapati families has made commitment to send us the donations in particular for Education Scholarship Program of Prajapati Vishva Ashram headed byvolunteer Shree Champakbhai Dajibhai Mistry of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
