Winter Ponk Party – 6/1/2018

This year’s Ponk Party started with Mrs. Prabhaben Patel (president) giving a welcome speech in which she thanked all the members for their support and cooperation towards all Mandal activities. She also gave her good wishes for the coming year to all the Mandal Sakhis. She then announced and welcomed Mrs. Kashmira Mehta as the new JMM Committee Member. She then called upon Mrs. Jagruti Asmani to start hosting the Fancy Dress / Performance program.

The program started with Jignasa Patel presenting herself as ‘Bharatmata’ and all members stood up to sing our National Anthem. Then it was time for everyone to sing and march on the song ‘Hum honge Kamyab’.

Mrs. Jagruti Asmani started hosting the Fancy Dress / Dance / Performance program.

Thus, started two hours of pure fun and entertainment. All the ladies young and senior participated with almost childish joy & seriousness. Many dances, short drama, Catwalks, songs, etc were performed with joyful abandonment. 2 minute inspirational speeches were also given by few participants. Thus, the JMM goal of bringing out hidden talents of our members and giving them chance to perform in front of an audience with confidence was served.

The program ended with gifts being distributed to all participants for their sincere efforts and creativity.

The vote of thanks speech was given by Mrs. Mamta Randeria.

Gujarati tithi calenders were also distributed to all the members.

The evening ended with delicious Surati dinner of Undhiyu, Puri, hot delicious Gajar Halwa, Batata wada, Dry Veg. Manchurian, ManChow Soup, Ponk Sev, Salads & Buttermilk.

JMM thanks Mrs. Prabhaben Patel for making excellent catering arrangements.

A special mention of thanks to Mrs. Neha Asmani and Mrs. Jagruti Asmani for their technical support for our JMM website and also for handling facebook pages of JMM all through the year.
