The monthly first Saturday meeting of Manjari Ladies Association (a registered  non-profit social service organisation) which is based in JP Nagar was a special one to ring in the New Year on a joyous note.  All serious discussions were put aside and it was fun and gaiety all afternoon. Ladies dressed in their colourful best enjoyed and participated in the jokes, music, games, skits and so on.

The icing on the cake was the humorous Kannada skit  “Sanmaana Sukha“, enacted by some of the committee members and very ably directed by Savithri Chayapathi, the secretary of the association. Parimala Rao who is the president of the association treated the members with hot masala dosas and sweets. Ladies wishing to join the association can please contact : 26684130 or 98441 44235.
