ADYAR GOPAL PARIVAR
ANNUAL CONVENTION 2013
1st October 2013


Dear Relatives,
I am pleased to invite you and your
family  to our Annual Convention to be
held on
Sunday, 29th December, 2013, from
9.00 am. to 6.30 pm. at
Sri GSB Sevamandal, Sri Guru Ganesh
Prasad, Bhukailash Nagar, Near Sion
Fort, Sion East, Mumbai 400022.
Phone: 022-24078147 and 24078226
Because of the pressure of present day
civilization it is necessary for us to plan
in advance on major events. Even after
adequate planning we are constrained
with multiple appointments on the same
day and time and fail to fulfill our
obligations to one or the other event
that clash with one another.
The 107th birth anniversary of late
Adyar Gopalakrishna Shenoy falls on
21-9-2013 and his death anniversary
on 8th Aug. 2013. And yet we hold our
function in his memory in December of
the year in order to make it convenient
for members to attend. We have
already booked the above hall. I
request you to plan in advance and try
to attend the Meeting along with wife
and children. There will be many
chances to win prizes. Children can win
one-time scholarships. Volunteer
aprons will be sent by courier to those
who wish to wear it.
Traveling allowance will be paid for
both local and out-of-city members.
(Locals receive Rs. 100 per head
maximum Rs. 400 per family and
Out-of-state members will receive Rs.
1500 per head maximum Rs. 6000 per
family). Accommodation in a common
hall may be booked in the Sri Guru
Ganesh Prasad building for one night.
Up to 50 people can live here. Please
fill up the form given on the back for
traveling allowance and
accommodation and it will be provided
on first come first serve basis.

Please plan in advance to ensure your
presence at this event.

I am sending by courier about 25 white
aprons to willing members who wish to
volunteer in helping the smooth running
of the function. These aprons are not to
be returned and kept by the volunteers
for their personal use after the function
is over.
Yours sincerely,
Dr. Mohan Shenoy
P.S.: Please send me your email IDs.

Kasargod Pundalik Kamath and
Kusuma Kamath.

Pundalik was working in a British
company and lived in Mumbai after
he left 20th Century. Pundalik mam
passed away in his late 60s.
Vasudha's maiden name was
Sharada and her parents called her
Shaddu lovingly.

She married Radhakrishna Kamath
who lived in Ahmadabad for a long
time. Both Radhakrishna and
Vasudha attended our convention
out of love and affection for the old
acquaintance of Pundalik Mam, i.e.
me. I thank them for this special
gesture of theirs.

When I was in Mumbai doing my
medicine, I was coming to Pundalik
Mam’s house to spend time on the
week ends.  Pundalik mam was
very good to me and he was
enquiring about my studies and all
that.

Again when I wanted his help in
those days to get copy of my
certificates, there was no xerox
then.  So he got photo negative
copies made of the certificates and
sent them to me in Mangalore.  I
was just married then and to go to
USA I had to get copies of my
certificates.  He helped me by
getting the photo copies made in
Mumbai.  They could have been
made in Mangalore also, but I did
not know that.  
The Story of the Mumbai
Convention
by Mohan Shenoy
Venkatesh in his journey to the city in
May of that year. Venkatesh had
passed his B.A. and wished to get a
higher degree before he started a
1954 and joined my father in his
grocery shop to help in his retail
business.
I did not wish to become a
shopkeeper.

I did not really know what I wished to
do for my livelihood. I quit my post in
my father's shop and  worked in
small jobs but my mind was muddled
with spiritual and patriotic ideas
overshadowing upon intense desires
and passions of an adolescent.

I joined the Ramnarain Ruia College
in the First Inter Science Class in
June 1959. After that I remained a
resident of Mumbai until I graduated
as a doctor from the Grant Medical
College of the Bombay University in
1967.

Therefore I was a common resident
of Mumbai for about 8 years and got
to know the city very well. Many of
our relatives had moved to Mumbai
and studied, lived and worked in
Mumbai.

After 1967 I had only visited Mumbai
on different occasions but never took
up residence.
I had held the Adyar Gopal
Conventions from 2007 onwards.
The 2007 Convention was the
inaugural meeting and it was held in
Mangalore. The second one was
also held in Mangalore in 2008. The
third meeting was held in Yedapadav
in 2009. The fourth meeting was
held in Moodbidri in 2010. The fifth
was held in Bantwal in 2011. The
sixth was held in Bangalore in 2012.

After our 2012 Convention in
Bangalore, I decided to hold the 2013
Convention in Mumbai. I booked the
hall and fixed a date in November
2012 itself.

Upon consultation with Taranath
Kudva, I paid advance to the GSB
Seva Mandal of Sion for a hall and
got myself set for arranging the
function. As usual I drafted
invitations and mailed them to all the
members beginning from January
2014.

I wanted to publish an English edition
of the book Adyar Gopal Shaktiphato.
This Konkani language book with
Kannada script published in 2010,
listed the names of all the ancestors
and descendants of the Parivar both
living and dead. I was able to add
names and make corrections of other
details that were either missing or
wrong in the Konkani edition. This
work took a lot of time to finish. I got
the book printed by the end of
November 2013. I decided to publish
the book through the Self-publish
facility given by Createspace of USA.
The same is now available through
Amazon by visiting Amazon website
at www.amazon.com and searching
for Mohan G Shenoy, author.

In my letter of invitation to the
members, I had added the following
paragraphs:
Note: My wife Lalitha is opposed to
my spending my money for these
events which is a publicly known fact
from the time I started this activity. I
have always ignored her argument
and told her that this expenditure is a
duty on the part of a son to pay
respects to his parents, elders, and
ancestors. She might call on
members to abstain from attending or
from accepting allowances, cash
prizes, lottery, scholarships etc. in
order to save money, and speak to
you like a sensible wife. She is right
with regards to young families but
there is no such need to save money
in my case. I request members to
ignore her calls but advise her that
this event is a welcome obligation for
any child of a family according to his
financial capacity.

Each one is free to accept her
argument or reject it, to accept or
decline the prasad, but I urge every
one to attend the function, enjoy the
hospitality of the Parivar in full
including participating and receiving
the cash allowance, prizes etc. Many
members gave value to my wife's
aggressive policy to curb
expenditure of her husband and
excused themselves from attending.
But those who attended very
obviously disregarded her contention.
I wanted to make members aware
that the function runs only by their
active participation in managing the
programme even though there was
no demand for financial contribution.
Hence I arranged preliminary
meeting for those who, I thought
would volunteer to carry out some of
the management.

A volunteers' meeting was held on
the 15th of December 2013 at the
Utsav restaurant in Prabhadevi.
Out of the 20 invitees only nine
attended this meeting.

Earlier I had mailed these would-be
volunteers a white apron to wear as a
uniform during the convention. These
aprons were of various sizes to fit
different corporal dimensions of the
volunteers.
To avoid carrying cash during my
travel to Mumbai, I arranged to send
money by electronic transfer through
banks, to a couple of members living
in Mumbai.
I also sent money to a member living
in Mangalore area who had
registered to attend the function.
This plan was successful because
any cash payment during the
convention was easy since all
that money came into my hands at
the convention directly from these
volunteers.
Another precautionary measure
I undertook was my decision to send
the travel allowance prasad to those
who came from outside the state of
Maharashtra in advance by electronic
bank transfer. Since the cash
allowance was Rs. 1500 per person,
it would have been a worrisome
business to carry cash for payment
of this allowance at the convention,
to about 37 candidates.

Using the Internet banking from my
home I was able to bring as much
money as I wanted to Mumbai by
transferring the amount to the
accounts of a couple of members well
known to me.

I was particular about documenting
the event with videos and photos but
the person to whom I entrusted this
task was apparently not serious
enough. He was trying to impress me
by reducing the expenses that might
be incurred for videograph and
photography.

I had given him written guidelines to
provide directions to the
videographer and photographer but
he kept the guidelines from being
passed on to the persons
concerned. The guidelines were
as follows:
1. We want the un-edited video with
all the sound as it is. The video is
going to be edited by me for
uploading on our website. Therefore
please do not edit the video nor cut
any portion of either sound or movie.
This instruction was followed.
2. Please do not add any music to the
video when you prepare the DVD
disc. Let the original sound remain
as it is. Transfer the video directly to
the DVD discs. This instruction was
followed but the DVD could not be
played on a player.
3. In order to capture all the action of
both the performers on the stage and
the audience, consider using two
video cameras. Two video cameras
were used as requested with
additional cost.
4. We want a photographer only for
a few photos and not all.
Photographs are to be taken of only
the Groups. No other photographs
are required. Charge only for the
Group photos. The photos must
only be transferred to the DVD and
not printed. We do not need any
album.
In spite of my earlier request my
friend did not appoint a
Photographer and we missed a
unique opportunity to capture photos
of the groups.
5. Video of the premises: Capture the
outside of the hall in the beginning.
Show entrance and lobby in the first
few minutes. (This was followed).
Show a few guests coming in and
entering the lift. (This was not
followed) (This was not done). Show
the guests entering the hall. Then
shoot the hall and the stage etc. This
was not done as expected.
6. Sound is important: Talk to the
sound engineer and ask him to direct
all speeches directly into the cable
leading in to the camera. The Master
of Ceremony speech must directly go
into the video camera. The sound
technician was apparently not serious
enough because the sound recorded
with the video was too loud and
microphone was not tuned properly
resulting in harsh disturbed speech.
7. Zoom in and Zoom out: We want
every activity on the stage to be
recorded.
There should be both zoom in and
zoom out during the shows. This was
not done properly. Zooming in and
out was poorly done. Most of the
shots did not go into close-ups of the
faces of the members but only
zoomed to shoot upper body
with the face.
One camera can handle the zoom in
video and the audience while the
other camera takes zoom out video
of what is going on. All speeches
must also go directly into the video
and not from the speakers. Take
close up shots of as many people as
you can and guide the subjects in
order to capture their face directly.
Faces were not captured directly in
most of the clips.
8. Advise the subjects: Guide the
subjects to begin talking only after
you have come near them so that
you do not miss any speech. Take
the video for a few seconds more
after they have finished speaking.
Do not close the video too early. As
far as possible do not close the
video camera any time because we
need the video of people in the
audience also and not just what is
going on on the stage.
Video camera was switched off often
because some of the important
speeches and scenes were not
recorded. For instance the
instructions given before the games
were not recorded in more than one
game.
A couple of games were also totally
blanked out.
9. Video of speeches and shows:
Take video of songs to full extent
from beginning to the end. The same
is with the dance or with games.
When shooting video of the games,
take zoom in with one camera to
show the expression of the subjects
like in sports video.
Take video of all winners of different
lotteries and games and other prizes
with one camera taking the zoom in
video. When panning the camera go
slow from one end to the other. Take
many panning shoots at intervals so
that the general over all picture is
captured repeatedly.
Panning of the camera was rarely
done.
10. Video of food service:  When
taking video during breakfast shoot
the food plates in zoom in and while
taking the video of the buffet dinner
show the food items in the counter in
good detail.
Food items were not recorded in
detail and we missed important
information about the food.
Take video of people standing in
queue for food both in zoom in and
zoom out.
Take video of people eating from
their plates at all food serving
occasions such as breakfast,
mid-morning drink, lunch,
after-noon snacks and while
distributing tambool.
11. Video of Dress and costume:
Shoot some video of badges worn by
people and the costume of the
volunteers.
Take video of the volunteers to show
what work they do and how they do
it.
Very little of this was done.
12. Tambool Distribution and
departure scenes. Shoot the video of
the Tambool distribution and show
the final departure of the guests with
the door as the scene.
Show some guests leaving the hall
and then getting down the lift and
walking down on the stairs as the
case may be.
Video of Tambool distribution was
done incompletely and using only
one video camera. Two video
cameras were hired but often the
second video was either switched off
or not employed to take
complementary shots.
Complementary shots are useful for
face close-ups and wide-angle
scenes.
13. Group photos are taken with
sufficient light and with Extra Large
image option.
Use the portrait feature when taking
smaller number of people in the
group.
Do not use the wide angle
deliberately.
Let the Auto focus work with good
flood lights on the stage. The
videographer failed to shoot the
faces of the members posing for
group photos. Close-up shots
were not zoomed enough to show
faces well especially of the children
sitting on the floor.
Take a moment to advise the group
how to sit and remain steady before
taking picture so that there is very
little chance of distortion. Let the
women be seated and the men stand
in the back row. The children can
either sit on the lap or on the floor.
Big boys and girls can stand
in the back row. Keep the number of
people restricted to about 12 to 15 for
every group. The videographer did
not stop people from moving out
before completion of the shot, but
allowed them to walk away before
completion of the shoot.
All in all, the Videography was not
satisfactory.
There was no photographer
appointed and those photos taken by
some untrained persons were of no
use since they were out of focus.
I was unable to obtain vital and
unique group photographs of families
that attended the function. This is
really inexcusable but the person who
volunteered to manage video and
photo department belongs to the
Parivar and hence pardoned.
Food service:
Serving the afternoon snacks and
drinks is an exercise that turns out to
be a challenge since the show goes
on while the food is served. I hope all
the members in the hall were served
the food. The caterer short-changed
on the quantity of the beverage by
using a tiny cup that was half-filled.
He had been told in advance to use
a larger container and fill up the
same with the beverage. It was a pity
that the members got to only sip
the coffee and not fulfill the purpose
of the drinking it.

There were decorated serving
counters that were excellent. The
video clips do not show it all
because the videographer did not
show the counters properly in the
video.

But the arrangement of the tables
and chairs, the decorated counters
and the plates and cutlery were very
satisfactory.

The morning breakfast was of fresh
clean tasty food and consisted of idli,
vada, chatni, sambhar and kaashi
halwa all of which were tasty and
served to the satisfaction of the
crowd.

The afternoon lunch was similarly
served. The food was ready on time
and about 150 plates were dished
out. The rice was cooked to a soft
consistency as per my instructions
and the side dishes were of GSB
style.

There was icecream served but the
videographer failed to shoot the
scenes of the icecream counter.
Although there was enough icecream
ordered for and the crowd was
requested to eat as much as they
can, the lunch itself was so filling
that not many people asked for
icecream more than once. I suspect
that there was more than half of the
ordered icecream went waste.

Appointment of the Master of
Ceremony (MC) was a hard task
because the function was not a
familiar one for the Mumbaikars. A
few of the Mumbai members
declined to take up the job, but one
volunteered to do the role of MC
without really getting prepared for
the act. He failed to do the job right
because he did not read the
information provided to him to be
conversant with the dialogues.
After I saw this MC working for a few
minutes, I found him not acting right.
I found him incapable of doing the
role sufficiently well. Then the
responsibility of doing MC fell upon
me. It was a blessing in disguise
since the programme required
knowledge of the families and those
members living in Mumbai belonging
to those families. The names and
relationships were important to either
describe the family or to relate to the
ancestors from whom those families
descended.

It is customary to recite a prayer as
an invocation at the beginning of the
programme. I was ready to recite a
poem myself. Finding no one booked
in advance for the same, I recited a
prayer to Lord Ganesha and other
gods. I think I succeeded in reciting
the prayer to the satisfaction of the
audience.

Introduction of the families was the
next task and since I was more than
adequately familiar with the members
of the families, the item was
adequately served.

The group photo session went on
well as planned but I was not aware
that a professional photographer
was not appointed as requested. I
have already stated how I am
helpless in this matter.

The purpose of giving gifts by lottery,
instead of giving them directly to
those whom I select at random, was
because for one thing every one
deserved a gift and for another,
there were not enough gifts to go
around to give every one.

There were many Mumbaikars who
declined to receive the travel
prasaad of Rs. 100 per person. I
kept telling the members that the
money is meant for spending and
that I am giving it in the name of the
ancestors and not as either financial
help or as a charity.

I sincerely wanted to compensate for
the expenses that the members bore
to come to the function. This money
was a reward from me in the name of
my ancestors who are their
ancestors also.

There were many who were graceful
enough to accept my travel prasaad
and thus glorify the thought of our
ancestors.

As planned, the function was made
interesting by the dance recital by
the Bhat sisters Swathi and Smitha
and by the Yogaasana
demonstration by Prof. Divya Dinesh
Mallya.

Sugandhi Keshav Prabhu sang a
beautiful Bhajan and baby Adithi
Girish Kudva sang a devotional song
very well. Songs that Aishwarya
Surendra Kudav, Sudha Taranath
Shenoy and Suguna Shankar
Prabhu were captivating to the
audience.

Navya Nagaraj Kini sang two songs
of which one was a film song. Ajit
Rewadkar sang a Bhajan with the
audience joining in chorus. Supriya
Sudarshan Prabhu sang a beautiful
Bhajan.

Ashwin V Kini and Namratha N Kini
efficiently managed seven different
games of which one was not video
recorded. This was an evidence that
the videographer switched off the
camera in a few instances, which he
is not supposed to do.

The Tambool consisting of a
card-board box containing a Laadu,
a Saata and a bag of 25 Grams of
Bombay Chewda was distributed at
the end. I personally gave the
Tambool to everyone who came in a
line.

The function ended as Ajit Rewadkar
said, "three cheers to Adyar Gopal
Parivar Hip Hip Hurray! with the
audience joining in chorus.

Concluded.

Dear Mohan Ajja,

Received your letter. We are feeling very happy
to say to you that you are the only person who
has recognized my mother's talent in YOGA,
which she has been practicing since the past
15 years.

Thank you for giving her such a wonderful
reward. It is not about the gift or money that you
have given as scholarship but it is about the
recognition that you have given my mother by
awarding her with the title of PROFESSOR in
the Adyar Gopal Parivar.

We are great-full for this.

If you are conducting any program, my mother
is always ready to give a demonstration of her
Yogic talent.

I once again thank you from the bottom of my
heart for your affection and support you have
shown towards us.

Thank You,
Your's lovingly,
Dhanush Mallya B.
