Baltimore Patotsav 2006

The nagars of the Baltimore area gathered together on April 8th 2006 to celebrate patotsav.

Baltimore Patotsav by NAM was a well organized successful event with full of excitements for every one. There was a Hatkeshwar Palakhi procession with Dhol & Dhaja, Pradakshina with Patakas, followed by Hatkeshwar puja & path, sholks and stuti, abhishek and aarati, election and entertainment, and a grand dinner.

It was a very successful patotsav celebration organised by Sunil Vasavada, President, NAM and his NAM team members and volunteers. Congratulations to Sunil bhai and his entire team. Let's rock it on National Nagar Convention 2006 with the 100 times spirit and enthusiasm....
