Maha Shivratree 2021
Namaskar,

We hope everyone is keeping safe and well.

Over the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation in the UK along with following government's advice and announcements on a weekly basis. Since the end of 2020 various strains/variants of the virus have appeared which has meant a lockdown in the UK since late 2020. This lockdown will continue into March with the likelihood that there will be only a slight lift of restrictions when the lockdown is ended.

The official government announcement has laid out plans for the gradual lifting of restrictions in the UK between now and June.

With this in mind, it is with great sadness that we are announcing that the Mauritian Marathi Society will not be hosting Maha Shivratree.

This has been an extremely difficult decision to make but the safety and wellbeing of our followers comes first. With the current Covid-19 pandemic we have deemed this is the safest and most sensible option to take.

We would like to thank you for your understanding. Conditions permitting, we look forward to welcoming you back to Ganesh Chaturthi later this year.

Stay safe.

Thank You 

On behalf of the Mauritian Marathi Society, we would like to thank everyone who joined in with us during the live stream of Ganesh Chaturthi 2020. Owing to the fluctuating nature of the COVD-19 pandemic, it meant we had to make a difficult decision for the festival. In the end we decided that the festival would still go ahead but at a reduced scale and behind closed doors, which still meant plenty of work ahead.

The introduction of a live stream for the entire festival duration was a first for the Society. The live streaming was an overwhelming success with plenty of people watching live and watching later in the day. The feedback for this has been extremely positive and we look forward to setting this up again next year. Thank you to all those who subscribed to our YouTube channel.

We would like to thank all those who assisted before, during and after the festival with the setup/build. Without your help this festival would not have been possible. At the same time, we thank all those who supported us with food/drinks & financial donations.

A big thank you to all the committee members & Pundit Trydev for their assistance during this festival.

We are hoping to see you in 2020, if not, 2021. More information will be made available depending on the current pandemic situation over the next 6 months.

In the meantime, stay safe and look after yourselves. Ganpathi Bappa Morya!

Best regards
MMS Team
