To tell you a little bit about 2012 and all the activities organized by the sports club and in the colony.
One of our initiatives towards sports this year was that we extended our support to Sporting Option First Division Team in the MDFA (Mumbai District Football Association) which promotes football in Mahim and has every possible talented footballer in Mahim playing for it. If you are a fan of the sport, you can follow and encourage them on FB.
Our first event...Read Full Post »

What a year it has been! So many changes for the better. I have not seen the colony this vibrant in years. The Marinagar Association has really stepped up this year to its role and delivered more than what was expected.
Christmas wonderland was organized on the 22nd of Dec 12 this year and what a show it was. The evening kick started with the Christmas Party for the kiddies. As usual the Kiddies were on the ground before time, while the organizers were still going through their last mi...Read Full Post »

There was a lot of hype about this event. It was well publicized and sure to attract a big crowd. A lot was planned for stage shows to deliver the entertainment expected by the audience. Live performances was the major USP but we even had a few dance performances to provide some variety to the crowd. We not only took care of game stalls for the kiddies but we also planned out a mini telegames event for them. There were rides like the mini giant wheel, merry go round, swinging boat and the jum...Read Full Post »

How does one write a Blog about MARINAGAR- when the word itself throws up Myriads of Images full of mixed emotions from Joy, to Love, to remorse to happiness to . . . . . MAGIC that is MARINAGAR itself..
Looking back and then looking forward, (now with a WUNDERBAR kid named Joshua), I know and probably always knew that I would not have wanted anything less for myself and now, for Joshua, than . . . . . ....Read Full Post »

If there is one thing I know about Marinagar is that ‘Joh tera hai who mera hai’. And that may not be what you asked for, with all the blessings you received but you have to take the good with the bad. One of the biggest things that we hate to share with people is personal information, things that we like to keep to ourselves so we can proudly say ‘I know myself best’. But in Marinagar you can forget knowing yourself best because everyone here has a better opinion abou...Read Full Post »

'Marinagar' the place I call home. So many memories - good and bad, many of which are a big part of who I am today. All my friends most of who have gone far away, yet so close to my heart. Ursula, Stephenie, Lianne, Rochelle and Wendy - we really had a good time growing up in Marinagar. We used to play behind Dale's house and had to be back home by 7 or else we get a trashing or propably be grounded for the weekend.
Sports day was always something to look forward to. At that time both ...Read Full Post »

It's all from the past, since I don't have much fond memories of the present as there isn't much when you are working overseas, although I am always a Part of Marinagar. Firstly let me say that I myself always treated it as MARY NAGAR ( All dedicated to Mary, Mary's Home) although we call it MARI NAGAR. The buildings and chawls then and even now all named after The mother of Christ MARY.
Those were the days when we had all activities in the colony, the talent contest where in we used to...Read Full Post »

A lot has to be said about the 3rd edition of Kickoff. This All Mumbai Rink Football Tournament organized by MSC and HSC has reached greater heights since last year. Compared to the previous year where they had 40 teams participate, this year they upped the notch to 62 teams which displayed some quality football for the spectators. The tournament was held over 2 weekends, from the 19th and 20th of May to the 26th and 27th of May 2012. Teams from all corners of Mumbai came in, from Kalyan to C...Read Full Post »

On the 4th of Dec 2011 the colony was filled with colours and lights. Music and sweet carolers singing the songs that let us know that Christmas time is near. Christmas wonderland an event organized by the MSC was definitely an effort to try and bring in early that Christmassy feeling we wait all year for. The day began with Kids coming down with their water colours to paint on the wall canvas that was stretched out in front of Nirmala Building. Everyone was invited to p...Read Full Post »
