Celebrating 40 Years Of Gurjar


09/21/2017

Gurjar, the Gujarati Association of New England marked its 40th Anniversary on Sept 9th in the Heritage Park in Lowell, MA.  Over 2000 people attended the event, which was organized as a Mela. 

The festival kicked off at noon, with the arrival of Chief William Taylor, superintendent of Police, followed by Mayor Edward J. Kennedy, of Lowell. Mayor Kennedy applauded the event and expressed his support for the celebration of the diverse cultures. 

Booths featuring food, trinkets, clothes and other sundry items were a great attraction for the people who made this an afternoon outing for their family. 

The central stage showcased a wide variety of programs. From Bollywood dances to classical and creative choreographies and the singing of Bollywood numbers the artists on the stage kept the crowds engaged. Shika Bajpai had the entire audience tapping their feet to Bollywood beats. 

Non-profit organizations like Ekal Vidyalaya,  ICC, Shishu Bharati , We Care and others also put up their booths to help get attention to their cause. 

“My journey with Gurjar has been wonderful. I have been actively engaged for over 25 years. I am so pleased to see the young people who have joined the team. They are tremendous volunteers who work without much ego. That helps move the organization forward. I am sure Gurjar will continue to thrive and enrich the lives of many by keeping the Gujarathi culture and traditions alive in New England.”
