After the the very successful 2001 Reunion in Toronto, Bhaskar Patel took on the responsibility of holding the next one in Raleigh, N Carolina, USA in early 2003.
The choice of venue was strongly in favour of alumni from US and Canada in view of the relatively large number living there. Several rooms were booked in luxury Motel for a week's stay. All went well as many showed keen interest in coming. And then 9/11 happened in 2002. The shock and trauma felt by many particularly in US and Canada resulted in many deciding not to come. But 18 participants from UK, US and Canada expressed their enthusiasm by coming to Raleigh. Many from Canada and US came by car !!!
The week's programme included:
• Daily morning yoga classes conducted by (Yogi) Ramanand Patel
• Day outings in and around Raleigh
• Evening entertainment: speeches, songs & music, fun and games
• Last dinner
UK: Bhaskar & Vidula, Chhagan & Nalini, Pyarali & Naseem
Canada: Arun & Madhu, Aziz & Amina, Babu & Jennifer, Inderjit & Chindo, Vivian & Greta, Urema
US: (Yogi) Ramanand
