Festival of traditional Gaothan flavours to be held in the month of April 2012


The festival programme is being organized by the MobaiGaothan Panchayat (MGP). It will include a gaothan exhibition with community artifacts on display, a massive food festival with traditional East Indian platter and a cookery programme to be hosted by Michael Swamy, the author of “The East Indian Kitchen” 

The exhibition will include some traditional utensils and daily equipment used by the community members who are aborigines of the city. The food festival will give them a taste of the food they have been eating over the years – said Alphi D’souza, sarpanch of Mobai and the spokesperson of MGP. 

Members from the community will meet to discuss and plan the issues and challenges faced by the community in the city. The MGP also plans to set up local stores at all city gaothans, which will sell home-selling articles, grown-prepared and manufactured exclusively by the community. The first store will be set-up in the JUHU gaothan.

One of the main community marketing means is festivals, whether it's cultural, historical or religious or the other kind of festivals. As a marketing tool, it is often a successful one or a failed so what makes an honest festival and what makes it a failure Festival is an occasion, usually and ordinarily staged by an area community, which centers on and celebrates some unique aspect of that community and therefore the Festival (Wikipedia definition). Festivals are made for basically two purposes: festival features a reason and purpose, marketing, musical, food, film, cultural, historical....etc, the list goes on, and supported the aim we identify the dimensions of effort required. On a side note, all festivals regardless of the purpose are marketing festivals in its core. For instance, the Cannes festival is often a movie festival with a purpose. if you want a good educational site visit my: [ ] There are tons of various activities that you simply can choose between . for instance, yoga, aerobics, or maybe archery. the bulk of scholars like education because it is straightforward
