Activities At Chitpavan Brahman Sangh, Nashik
The core purpose of forming this organization itself was to
unite all the community members, and thereby taking care of
them in terms of health, education, religious, social and financial
ways. And to achieve all the above we regularly engage ourselves
into various activities like Organizational, Religious, Educational,
health and business forums.
1) Organizational Activities:
Shri. Bhagwan Parshuram Jayanti, Chaitra-Gouri Haladi-Kunku,
Hartalika Pujan, Ganeshotsav
etc. programs are being held from the very beginning of Chitpavan
Brahman Sangh Formation.
On every Parshuram Jayanti, Lord Shri. Parshuram is worshiped
and his Pavamanabhishek Pujan is done.
On Hartalika Pujan, newly married women (SawashNa) attend
in huge numbers to perform the puja. And main thing is this
puja is performed by women only.
After that Ganeshotsav which is very old traditional festival
of 5 days is happily celebrated. During these 5 days we usually
arrange various competitions and other activities like Flower
arrangement, Rangoli, Cooking skills, and indoor games like
Carom, Chess, Table Tennis, etc.
2) Religious Activities:
We organize various religious
programs and help the people to grasp the basic essence
of Sanskar. Among them on Late. Radhabai Gadre' Punyatithi
(death aniv.) we arrange Kirtana, Shrawani, Niranjan Swami
Punyatithi, Mahalaxmi pujan (i.e., Asthmi Puja). On Ashwin
Shuddha Ashtami we perform Shri. Mahalaxmi Pujan. This is
followed every year since last 40+ years. During this Ashtami
puja women gather in large number and blow Ghagar.
We also arrange a Common Vratbandh (Samudayik Munji) for financially
weaker sections of community.
3) Educational Activities:
Our organization is always ready to help the community in terms
of education. We provide all types of and all streams of books
from our R.K. Patwardhan Book Library. Various students
have been benefited from this service which were having some financial problems
during their studies. Also, many of them are now well settled and successful in their respective fields.
We also offer scholarships every year which are ranging from
1 to 1.5 lacs. Perhaps, we also provide financial aid to the
students for their higher education who are then supposed to
repay their dues after getting a good job.
On joint behalf of Chitpavan Brahman Sangh and Raja Shivaji
Margadarshan Kendra we arrange various career seminars for NDA
exams. We also organize the most popular Math Competition amongst
the school students named "Late. D. R. Kaprekar Memorial"
Math Competition. This is arranged every year since last 25
years. At the starting, Kaprekar Sir was himself used to organize
this competition. And we are proud that we have still managed
to continue his great efforts.
4) Health Related Activities:
Under health related activities, if necessary we also try n
provide financial aid to the community members of 40+ age who
are suffering from any deadly desease.
Our work doesn't stop here. We also felicitate offers taken
by community people by awarding them with Parshuram Puraskar.
Till now we have felicitated Shri. Prabhakar Modak, Bapurao
Manohar, Vaidya. Annashastri Datar, Vaidya. Annashastri Karmarkar
for their social service.
We also organize health seminars and blood donation camps from
time to time.
