It may have taken a little over a decade involving much travel, hard work and consistent research to give final shape to “Fragrant Folios: The Palanpur Story”. But the book, authored by the late Jitendra C. Mehta with active support from Kavinbhai Parikh, Dr Vikram Mehta, translator and co-author Amrit Gangar and many others, is a true gem that will be valued and treasured by all those who hold the City of Palanpur and everything it represents close to their hearts.
Fiona Ankit Jhaveri, a student of Std 9 at Greenlawns High School, Mumbai won a Gold Medal in Taekwondo (U-17, 44-26kg category) at the recently concluded all-India CICSE National Games held in Ahmedabad. She was selected to represent Maharashtra at the event after securing gold at the Zonal level competition held earlier in Navi Mumbai.
A number of Palanpuri family businesses have been extending their support to various welfare and development projects being taken up by the Vicharta Samuday Samarthan Manch (VSSM), an organization working for holistic development of the Nomadic Tribes, De-Notified Tribes and other most marginalized communities in North Gujarat, particularly Banaskantha district.
Anshul Kothari, ace swimmer with many creditable achievements at national and international competitions, once again was one of the star performers for Gujarat, being part of the two medal-winning teams at the 36th National Games which was held in the state. He is the son of Sushama & Ketan Rasiklal Kothari.
