Welcome to Gujarati Samaj


Wishing you all a great, blissful, healthy, very happy, and prosperous New Year. On behalf of the incoming Executive Committee, I want to thank you all for giving us this opportunity to serve you, and I also, thank the departing Committee for their dedicated service to our Samaj.

We are starting our 2022 series of exceptional programs with a Bollywood Musical evening “Ujjval Vyas & Madhu Vijay group, NJ” on Saturday, April 9, 2022 at 5:00 PM at Greater Baltimore Temple. The Bollywood Musical evening is dedicated in the honor of late GSB Chairman Mr. Nileshbhai Desai. As always, we aim to bring high-quality programs at very reasonable prices. Additional details are provided in the flyer. We are very thankful to you for your support, encouragement and appreciation for our programs and events for many years. Please do not miss to attend this very entertaining Bollywood Musical evening full of talented and famous artists. We are looking forward to seeing you there. You can buy your tickets online (we are working to open online booking) or you may contact any of the committee members.

GSB will migrate to electronic newsletter moving forward from this year and onward. If you are not on our e-mail list, I request you to join our e-mail list at this time, because from this year no more flyers will be mailed. E-mails are the most cost-effective and efficient way to keep you informed about our programs, important community news and other pertinent information in a timely manner. We maintain strict standards regarding the content in our e-mails and we will not inundate you with junk e-mails. You do not have to become a member of the Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore to join our e-mail list.

However, if you are a Gujarati and live in Baltimore/Washington area, we urge you to become a life member of the Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore. Considering our outstanding programs and numerous other activities provided at a very reasonable price, our $201 lifetime family membership is the best bargain ever. If you are not a member, please become our lifetime member and encourage your friends to become lifetime members of Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore also.

We are planning additional activities this year to encourage youth participation and I urge our members to provide us with suggestions for such activities. It is never too early to talk about Yatra. We are planning on June 11th /12th OR September 10th /11th – Temple trip to ISKON tentatively. This Yatra has been very successful for many years and for many of our members, especially for senior citizens it is one of the most fulfilling and enjoyable experiences. Major funding for such trips is provided by the Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore. I request individuals and businesses for your tax-deductible charitable contributions to expand the scope of this Yatra. Please contact any committee member for more information to pledge your donations. Any amount of donation is benefiting a great cause and is greatly appreciated.

Our 2022 calendar of events are as follows: April 9 – Musical evening with light dinner at Greater Baltimore temple,June 11/12 OR September 10/11 – Temple trip to ISKON tentatively. If that doesn’t work, then fall back to Vraj temple. ,July 17 – Annual Picnic at Centennial Park,September 24, October 1, October 8, October 15 – Navratri (Garba) at Meadowbrook Athletic,November 5 – Diwali dinner. Tentatively at Sykesville Fire station hall, December 4 – Annual General Body meeting at Greater Baltimore temple. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend most of these events. For the latest information on our events and other useful information, please visit our website regularly.

We are very thankful to Vakul More and Pritesh Shah for setting up and maintaining our e-mail system, online booking, website, photography services at our events, and uploading pictures and videos to our website at no charge. I also would like to thank our committee members and volunteers for their hard work and support to make all our events successful.

Again, I would like to thank you all for giving me this opportunity and I truly welcome any suggestions and your warm support for the continued success of our Gujarati Samaj of Baltimore.

Everyone has a purpose in life… a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others, we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is our ultimate goal of all goals.
