xx Gujarati Samaj of Central Texas is Born Again!
« Thread started on: Sep 20th, 2009, 4:15pm »

Gujarati Samaj of Central Texas was once again at a cross roads. The current committee suddenly decided to call it quits on 9/19/2009. It seemed that they were frustrated with the degree of participation by the members. Was it time to lay Gujarati Samaj to rest, just as many other Indian organization (like India Circle) have gone, or was there enough energy for it to reemerge better and stronger?

Things seemed pretty bleak until few hours before the last program (a Garba) on 9/19/2009. Then came an unsolicited phone call from one of the younger member of our Samaj. Neepa Patel, even though she has moved to Grand Prairie, was concerned about letting the next generation of our Samaj children growing up without the benefit of our Samaj.

Here is the 15 minutes that it took for ‘Gujarati Samaj to be Born Again’ The entire hall was full of excitement and enthusiasm as we passed on the leadership to our youth. May be other organizations that are dying due to lack of steam can learn from our experience. Click here to listen to this historic meeting:
