On Saturday evening on November 16, 2019, AIMGA (Australian Indian Medical Graduates Association ) held their annual dinner at the Water View Function Centre Olympic Park. Guest of honours were Hon Manish Gupta, Consul General of India, Hon Dr Geoffrey Lee, Minister of Skills and Tertiary Education, the Chairman of Multicultural NSW Dr. Harinath and Australian entertainer Kamahl. It was a packed venue with a night attended by AIMGA members and guests.

Sydney’s multitalented personality and charming Preeti Thadani was the emcee of the evening as she warmed up the guests with the evening program that commenced with national anthems of both Australia and India.

President of AIMGA, Dr. Palu Malaowalla thanked everyone for attending and outlined her vision for AIMGA in the coming years, stating categorically that AIMGA expand at a rapid pace and gather enough strength to allow its voice to be heard in political, charitable and social circles. She added that AIMGA in the coming years should establish itself as a powerful organisation that is able to contribute to society through education, charity and social activities.

The entertainment segment involved performers and art forms of India including classical, traditional and Bollywood performances. A well choreographed dance performance by Ruchi Sanghi’s dance group, got a big applause from the guests, what followed was a rocking dance performance with Bollywood and Western numbers by local talented dance groups which added a masti bonanza for all. The night ended with surprise flash mob well coordinated dance by the members of AIMGA added an extra touch of elegance to an eventful evening.

The highlight of the evening was the keynote message by the legendary Australian entertainer Kamahl. His inspiring speech took the audience on a journey through his life, his initial struggles and his hard earned accomplishments, in the face of severe odds. The crowning moment was his rendition of a beautiful song and then a recitation of a beautiful poem in his baritone voice.

It was a remarkable and vibrant evening with inspiring speeches. The event was a resounding success mainly due to the people who attended and efforts put in by some of hardworking volunteer members of AIMGA, they seemed to enjoy having delivered an enjoyable evening under the stewardship of Dr. Malaowalla.
