We will start as a group at a Central Jersey Temple, we will go Temple hopping throughout Pennsylvania, go to New Vrindavan in West Virginia, stay the night, come back to the Durga Temple in South Brunswick and sponsor a “lunger” at the Temple. More details to follow soon from our Cultural Secretary, Raj Shekharji.
We are finalizing plans for Diwali and will have details for you soon. The New Years bash is going to be awesome. It will be a formal event and we are flying in talent from Mumbai for entertaining us.www.RANA-NJ.ORG has dates published for the Diwali gathering and New Year Bash.

I am pleased to announce that our chapter has awarded $100 to Ananya Singh for her community service project. A summary of her project can be seen at http://www.rana-nj.org/community-service/ If you have not done so already, please consider donating. The amount you give is not important. Its important that we support the community service initiatives of our youth. We need to teach them the importance of giving.
Please do let us know if your child is pursuing a community service project. In order to receive RANA-NJ support, an essay is required that summarizes the project and the reason it is important to the child. After the project is complete, an essay will be required sharing the details of the completion.
Please be sure to tell other Rajputs about RANA. Increasing membership is always very important especially since there are so many wonderful initiatives by RANA.
I have some excited news that I will be sharing with you soon. In the meantime, please see.
