We really appreciate your increased in participation and interest in Mandal activities. This is just a sign of Mandal’s growing popularity.

2018 Management Committee

We have recently had one of the most interesting AGM in MMVIC history. An election actually took place between competing members vying for various committee positions. A new committee has since been formalized and has already started to get into the nitty gritty of activities for this year.

A big thank you to Dilip Bapat and Rajiv Padhye to make sure the proceedings were smooth and harmonious. We would like to sincerely thank outgoing secretary Dhananjay Sambare for his mammoth efforts for the past few years. While he will not be one of the official office bearer we are sure he will still be very much involved in the activities. We would also like to thank Ravi Bhave and Suneeti Gokhale for their continual support throughout the last few decades. Let’s hope we get the केशर युक्त भावे श्रीखंड this Diwali as well. Shriram Karve came on-board last year and has done a wonderful job in the sponsorship activities for us. Akanksha Gowande joined us as a Youth member and has contributed not only during our flagship event YUVA but also throughout all the other activities in the last year.

We would like to welcome Prashant Jadhav (Secretary), Vishwas Charegaonkar (Member/Joint-Treasurer), Sagar Mulay, Arya Athavale and Shweta Mithsagar (Youth member) to our team.

Check out your new committee
