Message from HSNEF -2020 Chair – Padma Mukund

Dear Devotees,
                  • Om Ganeshaya Namaha •
A Very Happy and Prosperous New year 2020 to you and your families. As we step into the New Year, may Lord Ganesha bless us by clearing out all the obstacles in our life and ushering in Peace, Prosperity and wellbeing.
Last year, we celebrated Kumbhamela Pushkarotsav (12th year anniversary), Umiya Mata and Navagraha Pratistha with great zeal and enthusiasm. There had been lots of development on the infrastructural front too, which culminated with the Groundbreaking ceremony for the upcoming car parking facility. All of these would not have been possible without the efforts of the entire team of EB -2019, AC, Building and Architecture team and all the related teams, dedicated Volunteers and your support. Big Thankyou to all.
We would also like to thank the outgoing members of 2019 Executive Board (Sri. Sandip Gupta, Sri. Vipin Kalhan, Smt. Saraswathi Singh, Smt. Sangita Horton and Dr. Raj) and the Advisory council (Sri. Rajat Sharma, Sri. Krishna Hanchate) for all their relentless work, support and their contributions to HSNEF.
Please join us in welcoming the new incoming EB 2020 team (Sri. Pavan Varshney, Sri. Gyan Joshi, Sri. Anurag Jain, Sri. Nikhil Shah and Smt. Shweta Parikh) and the Advisory council members (Sri. Raghu Chatrathi and Sri. Mayan Dave). We are sure that their knowledge and expertise will help in the growth of our temple.
We pray Lord Ganesha to bless us and help us carry forward the good work that has been done so far and take the temple to the next level by our EB-2020. Before we go any further, this being the 13th year, we will continue all the worship related activities as previous years. With the Groundbreaking ceremony completed, we are now looking to start the construction of next phase (Phase 1) which comprises of Pond closure, new Pond construction, and laying of Car parking areas. As a community, this is the time to rise and come together for the common cause of building our temple. “Let’s come together and Build together”. We are also reviving Sandesh – a quarterly magazine from the temple to provide periodic updates.
Only with your collective contribution and participation is it possible to achieve the development plan.
We look forward to your continued support be it time, money or expertise.
