UAE: Coming together is a beginning, keeping together is progress, working together is success…and when we Kulshekarites work to have fun together, there is true success and happiness everywhere!!
The 4th annual get together organized by Kulshekar Friends, UAE, on November 2 at Zabeel Park was truly wonderful. We had an enthralling crowd, all being keen and enthusiastic in taking part in the day-long event.
Cliferd Rodricks, from Kulshekar Friends, UAE welcomed the gathering. The event began with an invocation by Calisha Noronha. Thereafter, it was pure entertainment with some lucky games, group games and spot games. There was a flood of games flowing in sequence like lucky person game, SMS game, raffle draws, frog race, logo games, potato race, housie-housie etc. Traditional Mangalorean games like lagori, tug of war and breaking the pot were the main attractions of the day. The children, youth and elders were all engrossed in the fun filled activities. There were a number of spot games which fetched handsome prizes to the winners.
Leslie Noronha honored all the sponsors for their relentless support towards the event. Ramcy Fernandes was felicitated for his outstanding achievement and dedication towards our Konkani community.
The programme was ably compered by Carol D’souza, Rajesh Sequeira and Karishma Vas. Ashlyn D’Souza delivered the vote of thanks. Special and sincere thanks to all the committee members, as their weeks of preparation and hard word culminated in the successful celebration.
The sportive spirit among all the members helped in adding more charm to this event. It was a well conceptualized event, which ended on a happy note. Special goodies for children (Santa had arrived!) and also family takeaways (donated by generous sponsors) were distributed. Everyone went home with gifts, smiles, new friends and rich memories.
All in all, the hard work put in by the members came in for a special praise from the large gathering. As said often, all that is well planned with noble intentions, bear’s fruit in hundredfold.
