The Annual Get-together organized by the Captain Colony Welfare Association on 10th December, 2016, began with a traditional welcome in the form of a ‘Gara Walk’ with the theme ‘Upholding our Past whilst Unfolding our Future’. The highlight of the evening was the musical non-stop ‘retro Bollywood medley’ put up by the residents from the ages of five to forty years, choreographed by Michelle Anklesaria. Chief Guest, Neville Daroga, ace weight-lifter and a Shri Chhatrapati and Gaurav Puraskar Awardee, as well as a practicing Company Secretary, appreciated the performances and added, “The colony that dances together, stays together”, alongside his wife, Navaz, the President’s Gold Cord Guide who represented India in the World Jamboree as Guide Captain.
