Ravindra Gadgil Chai with High Commissioner UK
Chai with High Commissioner UK.
High Commissioner Gaitri Issar Kumar met virtually with representatives of Maharashtrian communities of UK. Learned of their activities, achievements and aspirations, discussed forthcoming community events and consular issues.
Ravidra Gadgil, ( Founder Garje Marathi UK/ Garje Marathi Global Core Team) participated in the meeting.
“It was great honour to receive audience with Her Excellency Ms. Gayatri Kumar Issar, High Commissioner, High Commission of India, London to have informal chat on the "Chat with Maharashtrian Community" E-meet on 4th March 2021. Her Excellency listened patiently to the activities, aspirations, and commitment of the Maharashtrian Community and its immense contribution within the UK.
Her Excellency kindly provided guidance and advice about various initiatives of HCI to serve the community. The issues raised by the community representatives were addressed in an orderly manner by Her Excellency.
Her Excellency wished all the success and promised continued cooperation with Maharashtrian Community.
Overall, the 1 hour 40 minutes (original schedule was for 1 hour) spared by Her Excellency was most 'Value-Added' and all the representatives felt honoured and satisfied with the E-meet.
Key takeaways as seen by me - HCI and Her Excellency's good office is happy to work with communities and it is up to communities to make most of it.
I am sure Maharashtrian Diaspora across the world would reach out to High Commission in their country of stay and establish working relations with the good offices thru such meetings. ”
