Celebrating ten years since inception in East Africa, the Hindi Samiti was also marking the 66 years of India’s independence day on Saturday 17th August at the Oshwal Auditorium. The event was rather special as it involved several objectives such as the launch of their magazine called “Suryodaya” which means “the rising sun” edited by Mrs Neerja Mehta and presented by Mr Kalpesh Solanki, the update on the various charity projects it is doing, a call to the audience to sign up for membership and ultimately to continue to use and spread the “language of love and one of the world’s largest spoken languages– Hindi”. The Chief Guest of the evening was Dr Manoj Shah who gave great encouragement to the Hindi Samiti team and especially their Chairman Dr Prakash Heda. Then there was a short lecture on the topic of the night “Sneh Milan” which means “bringing people together for the purpose of love”, by Swami Satyamitranand. His favorite remark was that of a short story of his travel to California when he was asked to speak in English and not Hindi and he retorted, “if you can understand a Bollywood film and dialogues by Amitabh Bachan then you can surely understand me”. There was a musical production presented by Sahil Gada and team including apiece showing the struggle and ultimate achievement of peace during the Kenyan General Elections.
