I am excited to inform you that this weekend we will be conducting an overnight Kishore Varg for New Jersey Vibhag. The Varg will begin on Saturday (8/5) at 6:30 p.m. and end on Sunday at 12:30 (time and place details listed below).
It will be a great opportunity for kishore from across the Vibhag to spend time interacting with each other while they engage in several different atheletic and intellectual activities. Some of the activities that have been planned include group debates, several team games, and Sunday morning shakha.
We are expecting a combined total of 18-20 kishores and kishoris. Gaurav ji, Nandan ji (Vistarak from Baltimore), and I will also be attending the varg full time. The varg will be conducted at Sunil ji and Meenu ji's home in North Brunswick, NJ (address below).
Items to Bring
Please make sure the kishore have packed the following items for the varg:
- toothbrush, toothpaste, and other toiletries
- notebook and writing utensils
- sleeping bag, pillow, blankets
- gym clothing
Breakfast and Lunch will be provided on Sunday. However, for Saturday's Bhojan, we are planning something a little different. We are requesting every kishore bring a packed meal sufficient for himself/herself and one other person. The purpose of this format is to expose everyone to a wide variety of food choices; a variety that we could not achieve if only a few people were preparing food for everyone. Since the idea is to expose the kishore to the range of Bharatiya cuisine, if you could prepare something that is more traditional (even something specific to your hometown or village) that would greatly enhance the experience.
If you have any questions regarding the Sah Bhojan, please feel free to contact me.
