One more time Desi community is getting ready for a big convention – Jaina 2007. Like many other conventions this large gathering will cater various needs of our community. There will be philosophical discussions, religious discourses, social networking, and opportunity to show off for few.
I am a convention junkie. I have attended more conventions than most others in my quest to promote bone marrow drives or as a motivational speaker on Desi life - family and relationships I find my self in various national conventions 4 -6 times a year.
I have personally talked to hundreds of youth and parents, who find themselves at the blind end on the road to find a suitable soul mate or spouse for their child.
For past few years I am working on my own version of smart dating and assisted match making. Clearly our youth are in uncharted water.
I am very happy with the enthusiasm that I have felt during out discussion in JNF planning meetings. This forum is created to put forth the innovative ideas that will lead us out of this blind end and towards our destination.
I really do not feel any need to keep this discussion private because if more people put their input more likely we are to find the solution. However, some of you might feel the need to keep in password protected. If everyone is comfortable with openness we can open the forum for everyone.
