The Rajasthani Foundation (TRF) in London

At The Rajasthani Foundation (TRF) in London
23 June, 2014, London: Yesterday (Sunday), I went to a picnic-cum-cricket match organized by The Rajasthani Foundation (TRF), London. TRF is an organization of Rajasthanis residing in London.
This organisation has technically nothing to do with the Rajasthan Foundation in India which is an autonomous body instituted by the Government of Rajasthan. TRF works independently and is a community forum for social, cultural and charitable activities.
Since its very inception Rajasthan Foundation expressed its wish to open a London chapter. Discussions were on with various people including L N Mittal, Lord Gulam Noon, Gokul Binani, Om Chohan and others. During my London visit, I also had a few meetings at that time on this issue of opening a London chapter for Rajasthanis.
Right from the beginning, much good and bad has happened to this organisation in fair measure. 
Currently, an entirely new team has taken over and I heard that they keep organising get-togethers to keep the spirit of the community alive and to promote Rajasthan art and culture. It was a good experience and the weather was excellent.
By the time I returned to my hotel after having a cup of tea at Shivani and Akshay Sethia’s residence, it was 4:30 pm.
In the evening, I went for dinner to Sofra Mayfair. Sofra is a chain of restaurants which includes Sofra Convent Garden and Sofra Oxford Street. The weather was perfect for a sit out and we did so. It is worth going there again for the Mediterranean food and service.
