Dear Members and Friends,

As you know, Gujarati Literary Academy has completed 40 years since its inception in 12 Feb 1977. We have been organising number of major events / felicitations in 2017 and 2018 as part of Ruby celebrations.

To mark the end of the celebrations in a subtle and reflective manner, Academy is organising a day event on Sunday 16 Sep 2018 at Mandhata Youth and Community Centre from 10.00 am onward. The purpose of this day seminar is to reflect on the work and contribution of UK based Gujarati writers in domains such as literature, language, journalism and culture. Further details of the event is given in the latest issue of e-Asmita attached with this message. Academy would heartily appreciate any small or big voluntary contributions to meet the expenses of the Ruby celebrations.

Please also note that, as part of our monthly sessions, we have opportunity to:
· Meet Prakashbhai Lala (Associate editor of Akhand-Anand on a visit to UK) on Saturday, 1 Sep 2018 at Harrow Weald Library (2.00 pm to 4.00 pm)
· Remember Gandhi through his writings on his 150th birth anniversary on Saturday, 6 October 2018 at the Harrow Weald Library (2.00 pm to 4.00 pm). The session will have key impetuses from Sarojbahen Anjaria and Ashabahen Buch.

Looking forward to seeing you with your friends and relatives in numbers.
