The Diocesan get together at the Cathedral Church of Redemption, was yet another day for fun, frolic, delicious treats, and a moment for meeting so many people from all over the National Capital Region of Delhi and far away places in Haryana. I was able to meet so many ministers, relatives and acquaintances and was able to catch up with things, snippets of information, developments, and some of those things that are told in the ears, for your ears only! The Ekta Utsav is also an occasion for fixing matches between prospective grooms and brides. Yes, I got to meet my wife’s uncle Late Revd. John Asa Ram at one of the Ekta Utsavs many years back and his daughters, later to be my sisters in law approved of what they saw in me! Well no doubt the CNI Ekta Utsav is definitely a moment that all of us belonging to the Diocese of Delhi look forward to! I have pasted a few photographs that I clicked on occasion:
