MUNIAMMA SOCIAL CLUB FAMILY GATHERING AT JAPANESE GARDENS IN DURBAN ON BOXING DAY DECEMBER 26 2019
More than 100 third, fourth, fifth and sixth generation members of our greater Muniamma family got together for a social function at the Japanese Gardens in Durban on Boxing Day, Thursday, December 26 2019.
Family members from Port Shepstone, Johannesburg, Durban and even from Perth in Australia attended the social gathering. It was a fantastic event as the Muniamma family is also affected by the movement of family members to all parts of South Africa and the world at large. The extended family is fast becoming nuclear in character because of the demise of most of our elders. Only two aunties, Mrs Savundalay Padaychee, of Dundee, and Mrs Amoy Moodley of Chatsworth,, and one sister-in-law, Mrs Soundler Govender, wife of Percy Govender, are still around today. All of them are in their 80s and 90s.
One grand-daughter who is in her 80s, Mrs Panjala Naidoo, also attended the social gathering.
The gathering once again infused some inspiration for the younger generation not to forget their extended family members and their roots.
