BAPS Swaminarayan Sanstha Kenya organised an inspirational evening at the Swami Narayan Haveli on Forest Road Nairobi recently. 

Kenyans from all walks of life came to listen to speaker Pujya Brahmavihari Swami thought provoking talk on the Balance in Life. Swami advocates positivity, action and faith in facing day to day problems of

life. In a light hearted manner he gave topical examples of international celebrities who he said have managed to overcome obstacles in life.

The evening turned out to be an exceptionally educational, enlightening and spiritually satisfying.

BAPS Kenya is part of an international religious, cultural and charitable organisation committed to serving the world by caring for individuals, families and communities. The local chapter is actively involved in

providing medical facilities and awarding scholarships to deserving Kenyans.

It’s members frequently plant trees, actively collect old newspapers and aluminium cans for recycling. The Sanstha or group is also involved in community outreach and

disaster relief activities.


Pujya Swami is in Kenya to oversee and provide leadership concerning various projects the Kenyan chapter of BAPS is involved in.

Those lucky Kenyans who attended the event were later treated to a sumptuous vegetarian supper.

Meanwhile last weekend Gujarati theatre fans were treated to a dose of Gujjubhai escapades at the Oshwal Centre Auditorium in Westlands. The fun ride Gujjubhai Gotade Chadya featuring merry men from

Mumbai’s world of comedy, was brought our way by Fidelity Bank and Pal’s Bookshop Diamond Plaza.

In the gallant style and fashion of British Carry On series of fun theatre, the current offering had a simple storyline of how to say “I love you” to your wife .

The fun show written and directed by Indian man of theatre Imtiaz Patel, was assisted by a cast of some very talented players. Bhomika Shukla, Vipul Vithlani, Hitesh Parekh and Shakunt Joshipura managed to

deliver the Gujjubhai fun package with lots of vigor, conviction and buffoonery.
