Taking time off from your family and spending time volunteering for a cause is not easy over the weekend. Sure, you are doing something nice to the community, but you only have a weekend to spend with your family. And that entire weekend was donated to Janyaa for Utsav 2012.

We sincerely appreciate the time and effort each and everyone of you have put into this event. There was lot of work done prior to the event – designing the fliers, marketing, coordinating etc etc. And we needed volunteers in huge numbers. Our friends, colleagues and strangers – everyone chipped in.

Here is a small tribute to you all: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10151215729627376.479042.333664352375&type=1

There are many more who helped us prior to the event and also during the event. It’s just that we don’t have the pictures.

Thank you Sunil Khemchand, Vikrant Sisodia for helping with Dandia event. We know it wasn’t easy. You guys did an amazing job.

We hope we didn’t miss anyone. But if we did, we sincerely apologize for the lapse. Kindly reach out to us at volunteer@janyaa.org and we will publish. Thank you all for all your time and support.

Janyaa in association with WomenNow, Jhankaar Beats and StarPlus India organized Utsav 2012 on Oct 6th and 7th at Santa Clara convention center. This was an elaborate event with Kids Talent Contest, Star Chef contest and Mahotsav (Bengali group) during the day on Oct 6th.

Day 1 ended with Disco Dandia where we had a turnout of over 2000 people. People have enjoyed to the fullest and those wonderful moments have been beautifully captured by our friend Nick Arent: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10101199802532934.2865000.3323091&type=1

Day 2 had Dance contest, Star Quiz and Fusion fashion show. All of them have set a trend of their own.  This album captures the moments: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.282292388549791.60237.100003070975810&type=1
