CHICAGO, IL- Hi India and Shakti Group, who have been successfully presenting Indian dance extravaganzas since 2014, now once again have a grandiose plan to organize a nine-night Navratri garba event in 2018 and hope to win the support of the entire Indian community and organizations.

According to Hi India’s Hemant Brahmbhatt, though the night-night festival of dance and rhythm is a special occasion to rejoice for Gujaratis and Indians, “we want to involve the South Asian community as well as the mainstream community.”

Indeed, Hi India Live Entertainment has been organizing the ‘largest garba event’ in Chicagoland for the past last 11 years but since 2014, it has joined hands with well-known Shakti Group to make the Navratri event a memorable affair.

Earlier this year, Hi India and Shakti Group won encomiums for dreaming up two largest garba events presenting world-famous legendary singer Falguni Pathak and highly popular Atul Purothit who set the stage on fire at Odem Expo Center in September and October.

Says Ketan Patel of Shakti |Group: ”Garba lovers of all age groups enjoyed a lot, especially youngsters who shook their legs non-stop for three hours in traditional outfits. We were pleasantly surprised to find that even several mainstream participants were also living it up”.

Hi India (Hemant Brahmbhatt) and Shakti Group (Ketan Patel) successfully managed two largest garba programs in the entire Midwest area, making sure that the revelers enjoyed dancing without any disturbance and inconvenience. After all, the event was arranged in a highly professional fashion with perfect sound, lights and security for the jubilant participants and artistes.

As one garba player opined, Hi India and Shakti Group again proved their ability to manage such a largest event without a single untoward incident.

What’s more, this year Governor of Illinois Bruce Vincent Rauner was the chief guest at the Falguni Pathak Dandiya Dhoom event held on October 14 at Odem Expo Center. Gov. Rauner participated in this event with First Lady Diana Mendley Rauner and they both danced garba to Falguni Pathak's melodious garba tunes, so to say.

Organizers Hemant Brahmbatt and Ketan Patel thanked Nimish Jani, trustee of Schaumburg Township, for co-ordinating with the Gov. office and event organizers.

The two organizers did not forget to thank also all sponsors, supporters, volunteers and participants to make the event a roaring success in Midwest area.
