NEHAA’s Ugadi Celebration – April 23rd 2016
Ugadi  was celebrated at Vidya  and Gajanan Hegde’s  residence on April 23rd.  About 60 people attended the function.  It started with a pooja, following the lunch and ended with cultural activities.   We also named our chapter as “NEHAA” (North East Havyaka Association of America) which means loving, caring, rain, eyes.   This meaningful and thoughtful name was suggested by Gopal Bhat from PA.
