Mobai Gaothan Panchayat, is an initiative to bring all Gaothans of Bombay (Mumbai) together and fight for our basic rights in One Voice. The aim is to have a panchayat style of functioning. Every village is to have a Sarpanch and a Deputy Sarpanch who works in their individual gaothan (village).
Many Communities which have come much after the East Indians have a Bhavan of their own . It is ironical that the original community which should have had many bhavans can’t boast of even one to call their own. It is sad that many East Indian Associations do not even have an office, a Bhavan is a far cry.
The Mobai Bhavan was inaugurated on Sunday, 8th May 2011. The upkeep of the Mobai House involves high costs and a need for a variety of Gaothan artefacts on display we invite your assistance. Those who have East Indian artefacts can contact us. You may sponsor the same as your family names will be tagged on the specific artefacts or you may also sell the same at a nominal cost. Donations and sponsorships also welcome for boats, palm trees, huts made of coconut leaves, painting costs, exhibition space repairs, cavlas(roof tiles), bamboo sheets, cart wheels, bullock carts, tongas, nangar(plough) and any other artefacts of Gaothan speciality like utensils, clothing, decorations,etc. For more information you may call 9820087771 / 9820545302.
