  • Each Guest (Non-member) who is willing to participate can send a check or MO of $75/– {a non-member can become lifetime members for just $100/- and pay $40/- for this event and enjoy the discounted membership rates for future shows/events.}
  • The Check/MO  should be in favor of:  Gujarati Literary Academy of North America
  • The Check/MO should be MAILED to the TREASURER of GLAOFNA Gaurang Mehta, 38 Brandon Ave, Wayne, NJ 07470 or to the PRESIDENT, Ram Gadhavi @ his address

    Dear Ashishbhai:

    You missed a good opportunity to really ‘introduce’ Madhu Rai.

    It is rather presumptuous of you to say:

    “We believe he doesn’t need any more (which? None given!) introduction.”

    Not true!

    Sorry to say, but a seasoned organizer of such programs, would not take it

    for granted. Some, howsoever minimal, introduction must be given.

    More potential gain in promoting the event, with a few extra words, no loss!

    I, for instance, knew about મધુસૂદન ઠાકર, but not his nickname!

    You perhaps did not see my email in which I mentioned this link, given by

    Girishbhai Parikh, himself an accomplished writer:

    https://gu.wikipedia.org/wiki/મધુ_રાય

    You could have easily included it in your second announcement.

    It’d help, encourage and attract, some who are not so familiar with or

    well-versed in, or up-to-date with Gujarati literature. Specially the younger

    generation here, who can barely read, but understand Gujarati!

    Many of us here since 60’s, or earlier, have lost close touch with what we

    once knew rather well from school/college days!

    Sorry, I believe in honest communication among friends, so excuse me!

    Good luck

    Well-wishingly,

    Sharad

    Hello Sharadbhai:

    I appreciate you response and concern. We actually work with the ARTISTS and if they do not want to us say anything about him/her, we don’t. It is as simple as that. We have to get it approved by the person who is performing and we leave it to them – when they send us this this is what I approve to distribute, we do it. We do not overwrite their decision. Hope you understand.

    But once again, we appreciate your concern and hope to see you participating in such events/workshops.

    Regards
    Ashish Desai
    For, GLAOFNA
