1). Today’s warm up Yoga was conducted by Nootanben Laxman and we had Bhavnaben yet again to conduct the main Yoga.  She taught in Yogic poses how to welcome guests at home as well as how to bring tea and ‘ganthia’, how to wash clothes and to roar like a hungry lion.  Many thanks to both of them.

2).  DONATIONS : £25 from Madhuben Kothari in loving memory of her late husband – Vrajlal Kothari, today is his first ‘tithi’.  May his soul rest in eternal peace.

3). After lunch today we will celebrate “Mother’s Day” and “Women’s Day” and today, instead of tea and biscuits, Kendra will give ‘Thandai’ specially prepared by Indrakant Bakhai. This will be given at lunch time as well.  Everybody liked this.  Many thanks to Indubhai.  (Members sang songs, poems etc relating to mothers and there was a small play also.  Jasuben also recited some nice verses on Mothers.)
