CHICAGO: After ten years this august city of Chicago will be hosting again an annual convention of Brahmins from all over the world. By all accounts it would be a bit unique as it seeks to lay more emphasis on youth (second generation of Indians abroad) and back home.

The three-day convention hosted by Brahman Samaj of Greater Chicago is slated to be held at Best Western in Hill Side, a southwest suburb of Chicago from July 4 to July 6. It is expected to be attended by over 600 members, guests and attendees not only from Chicagoland but from USA, Canada, UK, Africa and India.

“It will be a grand affair by all accounts as the organizers have planned program and activities that will meet the expectations of all, especially the second generation Indian. The biggest attraction would be Single to Mingle that seeks to provide a platform to the young generation of Indians across the world to meet their counterparts to know each other and seek forging common values and possibly lifelong partnerships,” said Dr Ravi Trivedi, president of the host association.

Raj Trivedi, vice president, said that one of the great attractions for the youth would be a key note address from a renowned motivational speaker Bhupendra Pandya who is specially coming from India. He is a very impressive speaker and has motivated youth and adults alike for leading a purposeful life. “We have also chalked out entertainment program and activities for children who would not feel left out while their parents and adults are busy elsewhere. It will be a convention for one and all, and will be a lifetime experience.”

John (Janardan) Trivedi, chair entertainment committee, mentioned that the convention would not be a tedious affair as there are two great entertaining programs by talented artists from India – Yadon Ki Barrat which will take those present down the memory lane with beautiful rendering of Bollywood songs and live program by Smriti Pandya in film songs and rendering in semi classical mode. “On top of that we have planned Blue after Dark cruise for Single to Mingle candidates and informative architectural tour for those interested in Chicago’s history and architecture,” he said

Dr Ravi Trivedi added there will be sessions for health, fitness, Yoga, emotional well being and specific health problems faced by women during two days of the convention.

There would be a panel of six doctors practicing internal medicine, different specialties and a dietician on the first day while the second session will be only for women who could bring up their specific problems without any reservation.

“Let me assure one and all that this Convention would be an Affair to Remember with organizers making all efforts to celebrate, educate and cultivate our values, customs traditions, culture and history leaving no stone unturned for its all round success,” he said in a talk to this paper.
