After allowing 45 minutes for greeting and mingling, Pushpa Agarwal welcomed everyone. Prem Gupta briefly introduced members to the agenda and that the main objective for the first gathering is to receive recommendations &/or preferences for activities for each monthly gathering.

When possible, emails will be sent to members. Currently, a list of IAG Members with contact details is being compiled and it will be made available to all members. A website for IAG is also to be developed with the help of Abdullah Ali.
Subsequently, Indravadan Gandhi confirmed that Single Membership is $15 per year and House Hold Membership is $30 per year. Current total for paid members has already reached 56. This news was well received by everyone with cheers and claps! We are encouraging more residents to become members of IAG. Sat Khurana briefed everyone about the efforts being made by the Ad Hoc Committee to organize operations of IAG. He also encouraged members to be proactive and offer their services.

Bharat Shah talked about Makar Sakranti and Uasha Sondhi talked about Lohri (In this article, I will briefly cover major festivals, their significance and how they are celebrated).
Special thanks to Pushpa Agarwal, Fareeda Barot, Shilpa Doshi, Mrudula Gandhi, Jaya Gupta, Ayesha Khan, Nita Khurana, Chandni Shah and Nihar Sharma for bringing delicious snacks, sweets, tea & coffee and supplies.

Finger food only – no chutneys &/or sauces please! Thanks!
The theme for February Gathering is…CHARADES…please be ready to participate and make it a very enjoyable evening!
India, with its long history & rich heritage is a land of different cultures and religions. There are many societies and ethnic groups co-existing with each other in harmony. As a result, India celebrates many festivals. Celebrations never end in India!
Major Festivals & Events that are celebrated during January, February & March are:
New Year (January 1):
It is celebrated throughout India with private or public parties. Houses and public places are colorfully decorated. Eat, Drink and Be Merry…just the way we celebrate it here in the USA!
Makar Sakranti (January 14):
Makar Sankranti is a Hindu festival that celebrates Sun’s transition into Makar (Capricorn). It is one of the few traditional Hindu festivals that are observed as per solar cycles. It also marks the end of winter and the beginning of longer days. It is considered to be the most holy festival of the year. The entire day is spent on roofs & terraces by kite flying with lots of food and music with family & friends. It is an immense joy watching the sky turn vibrant and colorful with millions of vivid kites. The Annual International Kite Festival in Ahmedabad, Gujarat has been a major attraction for tourists. It is mainly celebrated in Gujarat & Maharashtra.
Lohri (January 13):
The joyous festival of Lohri is a celebration of the harvest season. Mainly celebrated in Punjab by Sikh and Hindu communities, the festival involves lighting a holy bonfire, feeding it, offering prayers and dance performances. The fire signifies passing of winters, the long nights and welcomes summer, the longer days.
Pongal (January 15 to 18):
Pongal is also a harvest festival celebrated in Sothern India to thank nature. Cooking the Pongal dish, making colorful rangolis, folk dancing, and getting together with families are some of the highlights of this festival. Celebrated mainly in Tamil Nadu, Pongal is all about love and happiness.
Holi (March 9 to 10):
Holi signifies the victory of good over evil, the arrival of spring, end of winter, and a festive day to celebrate unity and togetherness. This festival is celebrated by everyone in India irrespective of caste, creed and religion. Colors are sprayed or applied on each other and sweets are distributed as a sign of friendship and togetherness.
Gudi Padwa (March 25):
GudiPadva is celebrated in Maharashtra, Goa and some parts of Karnataka. This festival is set according to the lunisolar calendar and it is considered a very auspicious day that marks the New Year for the Hindu people of the region. People celebrate the day by colorfully decorating their houses with mango leaves and make kaleidoscopic rangoli.
More festivals are to be covered in future articles.

CALL MILT PARIS ON HIS RADIO TALK SHOW
For the past 15 or 16 years, Regency has had a group of golfers playing at The Meadows at Middlesex (a county course) in Plainsboro. For many of those years, the group was managed by your emailer and we had as many as 64 golfers playing every Wednesday from May through October.
I’m not sure if it’s related to the fact that Ron is no longer part of the group, but in recent years participation has decreased significantly. This past season we rarely had more than 20-24 golfers on most Wednesdays. The course has been in very good condition and many improvements have been made since the county brought Billy Casper Golf in to manage the facility. To make things interesting, we have two closest to the pin contests (2nd and 6th holes) each week. To make it fair for golfers of all abilities, you can only win twice per season.
Unless we add a significant number of new (or returning) golfers, we may not be able to continue with these contests. We have golfers of all abilities, and we’re out there to get a little exercise and have a little fun. If anyone is interested in joining us, please contact Bob Isaacs (email@example.com) and sign up for next season.
MESSAGE FROM RON: I MUST HAVE THANKED BOB 50 TIMES FOR TAKING OVER THE WEDNESDAY MEN’S GOLFING AT THE MEADOWS. THIS WAS A HARDER JOB THEN MY DOING THE EMAILING. I WISH YOU SUCCESS!
