Makar Sankranti after-event update

First of all, thanks to all the BMM members and attendees for a fantastic response to the Makar Sankrant event.  We had a great turnout for the event.

The younger kids were excited about the ‘Bor-Nhaan’ event and the women really enjoyed the haldi-kunku program.  The ‘Bollywood and Cricket’ game show was also enjoyable and congratulations to the winning team of Subodh Apte, Nikhil Kadu, etc.

Also a huge thanks to all the vendors and sponsors for the events as well as the various volunteers!
