The NATH 2003 Hatkeshvar Patotsav was hosted at Shree Padmakant and Nitaben Mehta's house on April 12th 2003 with much pomp and religious fervor. More than 85 people including kids from in and around the greater Houston area enjoyed the festivities which included rudri puja (performed by Shree Padmakantbhai Mehta), chanting of shivji stutis and shlokas, and bhajan and kirtans. Even the kids participated in the puja ceremony by reciting shlokas and strotras revering Lord Shiva and Lord Ganesh.
