Vashi Purswani [3rd from left] of Martin's Tailor had a great reunion with his managers of his various tailoring shops. It shows that despite all of them moving on to become their own bosses and valuable members of the Thailand society, their respect and administration for each other, including their ex-boss VP, remains high.
Truly, this is what Sindhis are all about: No matter who we are, we do respect our past.

ABOUT THAILAND. (The picture shows the Modern Bangkok)
Thailand is at the crossroad of Asia, and is the unofficial Wedding capital of Sindhis. Food is excellent, hotels are organized, rates are reasonable, visa issues is not a problem and Indians can get visa upon arrival. Yes, English is a problem here as Thai speak very limited. Tourist areas have good English speaking Thais.
Thailand is a beautiful country, but unfortunately there are now fewer Sindhi Families. Punjabis are found everywhere.
Indian Embassy is located at 46 Soi Prasarmitr, Sukhumvit 23, Bangkok. The Phone numbers are 66-2-22580300 up 06. The Fax number is 22584627. The Email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
These are some of organizations in Thailand.
India-Thai Chamber of Commerce, Siri Guru Singh Shaba, Vishnu Mandir, Indian Women’s Club, Siam Sindhi Society, Prem Prakash Sindhi Mandir and other such organizations.
Thai Vegetarian food is very easy to order, and there are lots of Indian restaurants also.
SAWADEEKUP or Welcome to Thailand.
As a start up column, let me first introduce myself. I am the sister of Vishnu Hathiramani, who is the Web Master of this exciting ST website.
The “Wedding Capital” of Sindhis is Thailand. No argument about it, according to a Bali frequenter. Thailand is easily accessible from India, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia and Philippines.
As a Wedding Planner, I could guide you all through, but being an Editor of this page I cannot mix my business with this assignment. All I can say is to make the wedding more enjoyable. My Son Nikhi is a Jeweler specializing in exclusive personalized designs while my other son Sanju is a DJ.
Sindhis holding Indian Passports, or those requiring visa to enter the country, can secure a Visa on Arrival at the Airport. You could get it between 5 minutes to an hour depending on the rush at the Airport.
In the picture below u will see Sunita and Kamlesh Daswani of Thailand enjoying each other in Baguio, Philippines. Both are gem of a person and also deals in Gems and Jewelries.
Tata Motors presented it Xenon and other Models during the recently held Bangkok Auto show. In one picture you would see Mr. Ratan Tata with the launch versions of $2500 Nano car.0
In Thailand the “Songkran Festival” is celebrated same as Holi. The only difference is that they use water but without any colors, just plain. This year as usual it was celebrated with much fun fare and delight of the tourists.
The Indian Ambassador Madame showed up at the Thailand Jewelry fair to encourage the Indian delegation who took part in this show. Great Lady.
Two Indian Naval Ships INS Rana and INS Kirpan visited Bangkok from 7th April to 11th April, 2008-2013. The fleet was led by Rear Admiral Satish Soni, Flag Office Commanding Eastern Fleet, Indian Navy. INS Rana had several visits to the Philippines in the last few years.
The Bhangra dances performed by the ship personals were great. Balle Balle.
More in my next report.
