Event Announcement:

AGM! Sounds boring Yeah? We feel from attendance in the past AGMs most Members of KCA may feel as you do, especially if a Sunday morning or evening is to be spent travelling long distances, just to listen to some statistics and speeches! 

So what can be done to make it rewarding. While we will definitely like your views at the meeting on how to make our Association more active socially and culturally, while we meet the obligations laid down in the objects of the Association, we want to also make it a fun cultural day for you and your family 

Hence, it was decided, (as far as we are aware for the first time in the history of our Association), to bring to you the MONTHI SAIBINISHI FEST on the same day as the AGM. We had to postpone it by a couple of weeks to avoid clashing with the Bandra Feast during which the there is heavy traffic near Yuvakalaya. The function is strictly for members and their families only. 

If you prefer, next time we will have it on the Sunday before the feast day. 

We will do our best to give you a true feeling of being in Kodial on a feast day!!
