Guyana: Meera Narine, Chairman of the Essequibo (a youth organization of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha) states that camps have successfully lured youth in a very large number and every Naujawan is pleased and happy with this accomplishment.

She further adds that when they began with the program the strength was very low, some 20 to 40 people, but as it gained recognition and popularity, it caught speed and now more than 60 youths are engaged on Sundays. She also wants to motivate and persuade the guardians to let their children out.

More than 60 youths showed up at different temples all around the region on Sunday. A 1-day camp was organized at the Affiance Mandir in which two youth marked their presence. The camp started with prayers followed by some useful talks regarding career in addition to some fun games and exercises.

Youths also participated in Chowtaal singing and were busy getting their minds ready for Holi which is towards the end of this month. Moreover, Hanuman Chalisa, as well as Gayatri Mantra, were chanted.

Pandit Kaydar Persaud, President, Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha, Essequibo Coast Praant, utilized this occasion to motivate youths to bring positivity in them and continue participating in camps like this.

He requested them to indulge themselves in sports activities, reading and visiting temples.

Towards the closure of the camp, youths were grateful to Naujawan for arranging the event. They appreciated their efforts and enjoyed all the activities.

Camps like these will be organized every month with an objective of active youth participation. (Inputs from guyanatimesgy.com)

There will also be gifts and contests on offers during matches in both the restaurants to celebrate the event.

“We have been waiting for this World Cup. Indians come in large numbers during the World Cup and we wanted these eateries to be a melting point,” he added.

According to Cutting Edge Events, FIFA’s official sales agency in India for the 2018 World Cup, India is amongst the top 10 countries in terms of number of match tickets bought.

Prodyut came to Moscow to study engineering and later started working for a pharmaceutical company here before trying his hand in business. Besides running the two restaurants with the help of his wife, he was into the distribution of pharmaceutical products.

“After Russia won the first match of the World Cup, the footfall has gone up considerably. The Indians are also flooding in after the 6-9 p.m. game. That is the time both my restaurants remain full,” Prodyut said.

There are also plans to rope in registered fan clubs of Latin American countries, who will throng the restaurants during matches and then follow it up with after-game parties till the wee hours.

“I did get in touch with some of the fan clubs I had prior idea about. They agreed to come over and celebrate the games at our joints. Those will be gala nights when both eateries will remain open all night for them to enjoy,” Prodyut said.

Watching the World Cup is a dream come true for the couple, Sumana said.

“We want to make the Indians who have come here to witness the spectacle and feel at home too. We always extend a helping hand and since we are from West Bengal, we make special dishes for those who come from Bengal,” she added. (IANS)
