23 Sep

There is no shortage of talent, whether it is in rangoli, aarti thali decoration or dance. There was an explosion of all this talent on Saturday 20th September at the B.A.P.S. Swaminarayan Temple. The ladies committee of B.A.P.S. Swaminarayan Temple organized a cultural day, which included a competition for best rangoli, aarti thali and fruit sculptures and thereafter an evening of different dances, all competitors and performers were from various temples across the country. The Chief Guest of Honor was Hon Sunjeev Kaur Birdi MP (Nominated) and the wife of the Indian High Commissioner to Kenya, Mrs Alka Varma, joined her. The event was very well attended and they did their best to keep the audience entertained with a variety of dances by girls and ladies of different ages and styles. This event marked the 150th anniversary of Swami Shastriji and the 15th anniversary of the B.A.P.S. Swaminaryan Temple in Kenya, also kicking off their Diwali celebrations.
