Event Update dated Jan 26, 2024

Jai Shri Ram!

Thank you all for your patience as we were rescheduling our program. 

We wanted to reschedule this program for Jan 28 itself but given last minute changes we were unable to find anything reasonable. Now the same Gaithersburg HS has agreed to host us on Feb 03, 2024 (Saturday) at 3 PM. So, we look forward to receiving you all.

Please note, despite rescheduling of the program we are completely booked, and there’s NO walk-in allowed. No RSVP, No Entry. The weather is going to be cold, and we do not want anyone without tickets hanging outside in the hope of entry. NOTE: All adults MUST CARRY GOVERNMENT ISSUED PHOTO ID to enter the venue.

You will be allowed to check-in from 2 PM onwards. Please remember to bring your email confirmation and government issued ID.

The entire program remains the same except we are NOT doing the car rally anymore.

Our first program is now Kerala drummers starting at 3 PM. So come with loads of energy to dance your heart out.

Request for donations: We had ordered food for 1000 people for Jan 20, our original program date.  Even after negotiations, we are paying $11,000 to the vendor. You may consider donating towards this cost at: https://dc.vhp-america.org/donate/

Important note: We’re thankful to Durga Mandir / Mahendra Chudasama ji for their spontaneous response hosting us overnight on Jan 20.

Thank you for your patience, and we look forward to receiving you all.

Respectfully
